  • 3/4 cup Classico® Traditional Basil Pesto Sauce and Spread
  • 1/2 cup Prepared Italian-style salad dressing
  • 4 Boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, about 4 oz. each
  • 1 package (8 oz.) Fettuccine Pasta


  1. In a plastic, resealable food storage bag, mix together salad dressing and 2 Tbsp. of Classico® Traditional Basil Pesto Pasta Sauce. Place chicken into a bag and turn until evenly coated. Close bag and marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour, or overnight if desired, turning occasionally.
  2. Preheat grill on medium heat. Remove chicken from refrigerator, discarding marinade and bag. Grill chicken for 8 to 12 minutes, or until cooked through and internal temperature reaches 165°F, turning occasionally. Allow to cool for 5 minutes and cut into thin slices.
  3. Meanwhile, cook according to package instructions and drain. Toss hot pasta with remaining 10 Tbsp. of Classico® Traditional Basil Pesto Pasta Sauce until evenly coated. Serve hot with sliced chicken.
