This recipe is about 20+ years old. It was on the menu of TGIF (Friday's) restaurant and I asked for the recipe. Although it's no longer on their menu, I make it regularly. It can be eaten when it's hot, warm or cold. It's always good!
Saute walnuts, onions, peppers, cilantro and garlic in olive oil...do not overcook...keep peppers a little firm. Salt and pepper to taste.
Put pasta in a large serving bowl or dish...toss with pesto sauce to coat evenly. Add sauteed ingredients and toss lightly. Cut grilled chicken into strips and place on top of tossed pasta....Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and coarse ground pepper.
Takes about 30 - 45 minutes from start to finish.
Add a Caesar salad and some warm garlic or cheese bread and you have a scrumptious meal! Oh yes....and don't forget the wine!
