Kitarra's Asparagus Pesto Pasta

This is delicious, my parents love it when I cook this. Even my Dad likes it, and he's infamous for not touching something vaguely resembling a vegetable. ^-^

1 bunch asparagus
½ pound pasta
½ pound boneless skinless chicken breasts [1]
2 teaspoons olive oil
2/3 cup pesto
Salt and pepper
Parmesan (optional) 

Heat a large skillet on high.

Prepare pasta according to package directions.

Cut the chicken into 1 inch chunks season with salt and pepper and toss into the hot skillet. Cook without stirring until most of the pieces have turned opaque. Flip and continue to cook.

Cut asparagus into one inch long pieces. Add to skillet and toss. Cook for 2 minutes.

Add pasta and toss again. Cook undisturbed for 3-5 minutes. Add the pesto and stir to distribute evenly. Cook long enough to heat the pesto through.

Adjust seasoning as necessary.

Serve with additional parmesan cheese, if desired.
