Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1

Before you begin...

Get all your ingredients and equipment ready

Skim through these steps

Wash your fruit and veg

Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)

2

Now, let's get started!

Boil a kettle

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the diced chicken with a pinch of pepper and cook for 8 min or until browned

3

Meanwhile, add the quick cook fusilli to a pot with plenty of boiled water and a large pinch of salt, then bring to the boil over a high heat

Cook the fusilli for just 2-3 min (it will keep cooking in the sauce later!)

Once done, drain the fusilli, reserving a cup of the starchy pasta water

4

Once the chicken has browned, add the spinach to the pan and cook for 1 min or until starting to wilt

5

Add the soft cheesepesto and Knorr chicken stock cube[s] to the pan with a splash of the starchy cooking water

Give everything a good mix up

6

Add the drained fusilli to the pan and cook for 1-2 min further or until the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!) and the pasta is cooked with a slight bite

7

Remove the pan from the heat and stir half the grated Italian hard cheese through the pasta and season with a generous pinch of pepper – this is your creamy pesto chicken & spinach fusilli
