  • 1 (16 ounce) package whole wheat rotini pasta

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or to taste

  • 4 (4 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces

  • 1 bunch asparagus, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 (8 ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped

  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper, chopped

  • 1 (16 ounce) jar Alfredo sauce

  • 4 tablespoons pesto

  • salt to taste

  • cup shredded Cheddar cheese, or to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  3. While the pasta is cooking, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes. Add asparagus, mushrooms, and bell peppers; cook and stir until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add rotini, Alfredo sauce, and pesto. Season with salt. Stir until well coated, transfer to a casserole dish, and top with Cheddar cheese.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and cheese has melted, 10 to 15 minutes.
