Method

Step 1

Preparation: Prepare all ingredients as indicated above. Boil the kettle.

Step 2

Cocciolette pasta: Place a large saucepan on medium-high heat and add the boiling water. When the water is at a rolling boil, add the Cocciolette pasta and cook for 10-12 minutes. You want it al dente, which is slightly chewy and uniformly translucent. Drain, add a drizzle of olive oil and mix in the Mediterranean Olive Pesto.

Step 3

Mixed mushrooms: Slice the larger mushrooms and the button mushrooms thinly, including the stalks, and separate the Shimeji mushrooms (smaller mushrooms).

Step 4

Chicken fillets: Season the chicken fillets with salt and pepper. Place a frying pan on medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil and a knob of butter. When the butter has melted, add the chicken and brown for 4-5 minutes until golden. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 5

Courgette and mushroom mix: Using the same pan, place on medium-high heat and add a drizzle of olive oil and a knob of butter. When the butter has melted, add the onion and thyme and cook for 5 minutes with a pinch of salt. Add the mushrooms and the Mediterranean Spice Blend and cook for another 5 minutes until slightly golden. Then add the courgettes and cook for 5 minutes until lightly browned. Add the chicken fillets back into the pan and heat for another minute until warm. Season to taste.

Step 6

Serve the pasta topped with the courgette and mushroom mix and sprinkle over the parsley.
