FOR THE PESTO:

In a blender or food processor, place the basil, parsley, red pepper, mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, salt, Tabasco sauce and black pepper. Cover, blend or process until pureed. Set aside.

FOR THE PASTA:

In a large pot, bring water and oil to a boil and cook the pasta for 6 minutes. Add the carrots and onion. Bring to a boil again and cook for 2 more minutes. Add the zucchini, return to a boil and cook 2 more minutes (or until the pasta is al dente).

Drain the pasta and vegetables; return to the saucepan. Stir in the pesto; add the chicken or turkey. Toss well to combine. Cook over very low heat until heated through, tossing occasionally. Serve immediately.
