The inspiration for this dish comes from a recent trip to St. Augustine. The hotel we stayed at has a complimentary happy hour on Friday night. The chefs from the Italian restaurant prepare an appetizer and the bartenders make a signature cocktail for the event. This particular time, the appetizer was a cheese ravioli topped with a pesto alfredo. I absolutely loved it. It had just enough pesto with out being too much. I knew I wanted to use those flavors in a dish at home and decided to add some grilled chicken and make a meal of it.
This was absolutely delicious! The chicken had great flavor and we both loved the pasta sauce. This dish is easy enough to make during the week. I used a jar of Trader Joe’s Alfredo sauce and Trader Joe’s prepared pesto. I cooked the pasta and made the sauce while Chicken Legs grilled the chicken. Dinner was ready in about 15 minutes!
