Easy Chicken Pesto Penne

This is so delicious, so easy, fast and great for summer. I used a rotissere chicken so I didn't have to turn on the oven at all. Everyone, including my kids liked this. I bought a large jar of pesto from Costco and can't wait to use it in other recipes. I am LOVING pesto lately.

Chicken Pesto Penne

1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup pesto
1/2 cup parmesan
1 pound penne pasta, cooked and drained

Boil heavy cream, stirring constantly, over medium heat for about 5 minutes, until it thickens. Add pesto and stir then add parmesan cheese. Stir until cheese melts. Salt and pepper to taste. Toss with chicken and pasta.
