Notice that everything lately is hassleback? Hasselback chicken, hassleback potatoes, hassleback apples, hassleback bread, oh my gosh, where will it end? Definitely not here. Today I’m jumping on the hassleback bandwagon (Peer pressure, yo. All the cool kids are doing it) with this out of this world Hasseleback Feta and Pesto Chicken Pasta. It’s seriously, like the best of all the hasslebacks.
Normally I would make my own pesto (I’m a total pesto snob), but with 6 kids doing activities this week, I don’t have time to just whip up a batch of homemade pesto….grrrrrrrr….. what’s a pesto snob to do?
Thankfully I stumbled on some pesto sauce from @BarillaUS while shopping at #BJsWholesale the other day. I was in a hurry and craving this chicken so I grabbed a 2 pack figuring I would give it a shot. I have to say that when I tried it, I was really disappointed and upset…. it was better than mine! A lot better, like I need to question whether I should even be allowed back in the kitchen ever again, better.
I guess when you blend together only the highest quality ingredients you get a rich and pretty amazing pesto sauce. Well played Barilla, well played.
I also grabbed a 6 pack of the Barilla Organic Pasta. I love this pack because it’s half spaghetti, half penne for maximum versatility in my meal planning! #BarillaOrganic #BarillaPesto
