Let's do this!

Let's do this!

  1. To make the pesto: put all the ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until fully combined. Use water to adjust the consistency until it’s smooth.
  2. Boil your pasta al dente according to the packet instructions, drain and retain some of the cooking water for later.
  3. Get another pot of heavily salted water to the boil. Blanche your asparagus for 1 minute in the boiling water, then drain and put the asparagus immediately into ice cold water.
  4. Now heat a little olive oil in a big pan, and fry your Like Chicken Bites until golden and crispy.
  5. Add your drained spaghetti, asparagus and pesto to the pan. Give it a good mix to heat it through. Season with extra salt and pepper, and add in a little of the cooking water from the pasta to make the sauce smooth. Serve while steaming hot.
