Ingredients
400g dried farfalle pasta 1 barbecued chicken (organic if possible) 190g jar sun-dried tomato pesto (Make sure to check the label- some jars will contain high sugar and salt content). 70g packet baby rocket leaves 100g parmesan, shaved, to serve
Method
Step 1: Place a large saucepan of water on high until it reaches boiling point. Tip in the pasta and follow packet instructions until tender. Step 2: Remove the bones and skin from the chicken and discard. Shred the chicken flesh into small pieces. Step 3: Drain pasta (except approx. 2 tablespoons of cooking water). Return the pasta to the saucepan with the 2 tablespoons of cooking water. Add pesto and toss to combine. Step 4: Add chicken, rocket, salt and pepper. Toss over low heat until the rocket starts to wilt. Divide the pasta between 4 bowls and top with parmesan. Enjoy! Recipe: Super Food Ideas - February 2004 , Pg. 48. Alison Roberts
