Creamy Tomato & Pesto Chicken Pasta

{Creamy Tomato & Pesto Chicken Pasta}

This is a recipe I created last month.  I had planned on just making a pesto dish.  The garlic was just to strong so I grabbed a can of diced tomatoes, heavy cream and the rest is history. This was a huge hit with my hubby and will go on the menu plan for sure.  
Hope you enjoy!
