Slightly south of the border (reprise).

Thanks to my next-door neighbor who graciously shared her fresh and piquant Basil earlier 2nite which got the mental juices flowin'!

I created Mexi-terrean Pollo Peasant Pesto Pasta a la Provençal

Microwave Tysons Fajita chicken boil Lemon Pepper Linguine 2 minutes to al dente, saute diced Vidalia onions in Olio Santo Roasted Garlic Olive Oil. Add fresh pesto and fajita chicken and saute another minute or two. Assemble in a pot. Season with sea salt, red pepper flakes, oregano flakes and herbs de Provence. Serve with Pinot Grigio and San Pelligrino. The peasant life sure can be good.

An homage to Francesca who a decade ago shared her >native expertise in all things pasta and because she, Tom, and the kids just had a great weekend away from Liguria in Provence and to Susan who gave me my pasta stuff and the cookbook which taught me not to oversauce ala Américain!

Plain and simple and yes delish, if I do say so myself.

That looks good. I especially like the name you created for it (and shared it with Tom, and had a good laugh)!
