    Serves 6
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 c. plus 2 tbsp fat-free half-and-half, divided
    1 tbsp. Hy-Vee margarine
    ¾ c. grated Hy-Vee Parmesan cheese
    2 tbsp. Hy-Vee cornstarch
    12 oz. uncooked Hy-Vee fettuccine
    1 c. frozen Hy-Vee peas
    2 tbsp. prepared pesto sauce, divided
    1 yellow summer squash, thinly sliced
    1 jar(s) roasted red bell peppers, drained and thinly sliced


    1. Preheat grill to medium heat. Grill chicken breasts, turning once, about 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. Cut grilled chicken into bite-size pieces. Cover and keep warm.
    2. In a small saucepan, heat 1 cup half-and-half and margarine until margarine melts. Add parmesan cheese gradually, stirring until melted.

    4. Meanwhile, cook fettuccine according to package directions. Add frozen peas during last 5 minutes of cooking. Drain and keep warm.
    5. In a medium bowl, coat chicken bites with 1 tbsp pesto sauce. In a large bowl, mix remaining pesto with cooked fettuccine and parmesan mixture. Add red bell peppers and summer squash, gently stirring to coat.
