Creamy Pesto Pasta

I love pasta. I love pesto. So naturally I was drawn to this recipe. I also like that it only has a few ingredients. This would be prefect with chicken in it. So simple that we had it for lunch one Sunday but can be elaborate enough for a weeknight meal. A delicious meal ready to eat within 10-15 minutes. The only down side is that it really isn't low fat, but sometimes you just need to splurge! :)
Creamy Pesto Pasta

1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup pesto
1/2 cup Parmesan
1 pound pasta, cooked and drained

Boil heavy cream, stirring constantly, over medium heat for about 5 minutes, until it thickens. Add pesto and stir then add parmesan cheese. Stir until cheese melts. Salt and pepper to taste. Toss with pasta.
