Pesto-change-o: It’s chicken burgers.

These light, juicy burgers are made with ground chicken breast. Prepared pesto sauce keeps the meat juicy and gives the burgers a taste of Italy.

Make sure the package says white meat chicken. If it says ground chicken, skin, fat and dark meat may be included.

This colorful pasta salad is made with a tricolor pasta. I have flavored it with fresh cucumber, basil and scallions to complete this casual meal.

HELPFUL HINTS:
  • Parsley or cilantro can be used instead of basil.
  • A quick way to chop basil is to snip the leaves with scissors right off the stem.
  • Only 2 tablespoons of pesto sauce are needed for the burgers. Extra pesto sauce can be frozen for another time.
