Chicken and Prawn Rosso pesto Pasta

Italian food is a favourite and is something that I love cooking at home. Tomato pasta dishes that pack flavour and are quick to make always win through. Today I am sharing my chicken and prawn (shrimp) Rosso pesto pasta. 

For this recipe you will need the following ingredients:

It serves four as a main meal, takes twenty minutes to prepare and thirty minutes to cook.

10.Whilst the ingredients continue to cook. Add 40 grams of tagliatelle pasta to a pan of boiling water with a good pinch of salt. Cook for ten to twelve minutes or as directed on the packet. 

11.Returning to the chicken add 170 grams of raw peeled prawns (shrimp) to the chicken.

12.Gentle cook the prawns, when completed add the pesto Rosso sauce and stir through all the ingredients.

You can make your own sauce if you like it is easy enough to make, I personally like the jar option because it makes the meal a super quick meal. 

13.When the chicken and prawns (shrimp) are coated in the Rosso, chop five basil leaves and add to the frying pan with the other ingredients.

14.By this stage the pasta should be cooked. Take two dessert spoonfuls of the pasta water and add to the chicken and shrimp. The water will help to bind the pasta to the sauce. 

15. Add the drained pasta to all the other ingredients and stir in until all the pasta is coated.

16.You are now ready to dish your wonderful meal up.

Sit back relax and totally enjoy the wonderful food that you have made with your own fair hands. Nothing is quite as satisfying.

    1. For the chicken you could swap out for butternut squash or sweet potato if you like them, sure it would be delicious with additional mushrooms for the texture of prawns too Lucy x
