Broccoli Chicken Pesto

This is a pasta the is full of Veggies and your kids won't know.  You could have fun with this and use it for St. Patrick's day!
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 Small can of Tomato sauce
2 heads of Broccoli
2 Red Bell peppers
Handful of fresh Basil
6 garlic Cloves

Start your pasta by following the directions on the package.  Unlike most GF Pastas, this one doesn't get mushy easily so don't me stingy on the water and boiling. 
Steam your broccoli heads until they are falling apart.  You want them very soft so they are easy to blend up.  

 While the broccoli is steaming dice up two chicken breasts.  You want them bite size peices.
Then brown them in a pan until cooked through.
Dice up your Basil and garlic
You are then going to put your tomato sauce, blended broccoli, basil and garlic all in a pot.  Heat it all together to blend the flavors.  You  can add salt to taste at this point.  
Once it is well heated add in your chicken.  Mix it all with your pasta and your kids are getting fun green pasta sauce!
 It might not look gourmet but have fun with it!!
