“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Barilla, but all my opinions are my own.   Hi friends!  I have one of my favorite pasta dishes to share with you.  I love it because it’s great with chicken leftovers, all my kiddos love it and it’s super quick and yummy!   Creamy Pesto Three Cheese Tortellini with Chicken… it’s creamy with a light pesto… yummy garlic… oh so good!

Pesto Three Cheese Tortellini with Chicken

Life… super busy right now!  I love that I can whip this together in less than 20 minutes.

I usually grill up a bunch of chicken breasts at the beginning of the week.  Makes for really easy salads, quesadillas or any other dish that calls for chicken during the week.  Other times I’ve grabbed a rotisserie chicken from the store.

For this meal I swung by our local Vons to pick up some Barilla® Three Cheese Tortellini, a rotisserie chicken, pesto sauce and a can of cream of chicken soup.

Here’s the favorite pasta dish in our family… creamy, dreamy recipe…
