Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None
Servings   6
Preptime   30min

1 pound shell pasta
2-3 chicken breasts, grilled and sliced into bite-sized pieces
1 cup pesto sauce (homemade or store-bought)
1 cup frozen peas, thawed, divided
1 ripe avocado
2/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup pine nuts
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and cook pasta according to package directions, or until al dente. Drain pasta and toss with olive oil. Set aside until ready to use.
Combine pesto, 1/4 cup peas and avocado in the bowl of a blender or food processor and blend together. While blending, drizzle in olive oil and lemon juice until smooth. Add parmesan cheese and pine nuts and pulse together, then season generously with salt and pepper.
Taste and adjust seasoning accordingly. Toss pasta with sauce, remaining peas and chicken pieces. Once pasta is thoroughly coated with sauce, transfer to serving bowls and serve hot, with more parmesan cheese.
