Inspired by Ita's recipe on another thread, I've started a recipe section. It can be anything, but not stupidity! If it proves popular, we'll make it a 'sticky'.

I'll kick it of with one of my favourite pasta dishes ...

Chicken, Pesto and Tomato Pasta

Ingredients (serves 4)
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 chicken breast fillets, fat trimmed
400g pasta (shell, penne, spirals, etc)
500g cherry tomatoes, halved
2/3 cup basil pesto
2/3 cup sour cream
60g parmesan cheese, shaved, to serve

1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Add to frying pan. Cook for 5 minutes each side or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm.
2. Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling, salted water, following packet directions, until just tender. Drain. Return to saucepan.
3. Add remaining oil to frying pan. Heat over high heat. Add tomatoes. Cook, tossing often, for 3 minutes or until just tender.
4. Thinly slice chicken. Add pesto, sour cream and chicken to pasta. Toss over low heat until well combined. Add tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine.
5. Spoon pasta into serving bowls. Sprinkle with parmesan and serve.
