Chicken and Pesto Spaghetti with Walnuts

This is Italian fast-food – it can be prepared and cooked in around 15 minutes, so it is perfect for dinner if you’re in a hurry or had a long, long day at work. It’s also better for you than a take-away :-)

The tomatoeas are optional but I think they add a nice juicey flavour to the dish.

Serves 2

2 fillets of chicken

1 tbsp green pesto

25g walnut halves

10 cherry tomatoes, halved (optional)

1 tsp basil

Salt/Black pepper

200g spaghetti

Chop the chicken fillets into bite-size pieces. Sprinkle some basil over the pieces and set aside.

Boil water in a large pot and add the spaghetti. Cook per instructions on the pack.

While the spaghetti is cooking, heat some oil in a pot, add the chicken and cook for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat when cooked.

Drain the spaghetti when cooked. Return to the pot and add the cooked chicken and pesto and salt and pepper. Stir well.

Add the walnuts and tomatoes (optional) and stir.

Done and delicious!
