Put your best-o foot forward with this tasty pesto. Hello Fresh have livened up classic pasta with succulent chicken, green beans and baby spinach.

Ingredients (serves 5)

  • 1 Red Onion
  • 2 cups Fresh Green Beans
  • 4 Single Chicken Breasts
  • 400g Farfalle (Bow Tie Pasta)
  • 1/3 cup Pesto (homemade or in your Hello Fresh Pack)
  • 90g Parmesan Cheese (shaved or ready to go in your Hello Fresh Pack)
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 2 cups Baby Spinach Leaves
  • Pinch Salt & Pepper


  1. GET PREPPED Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Finely slice the RED ONION. Trim the ends of the GREEN BEANS and cut in half. Cut the CHICKEN BREASTS into 1cm strips.
  2. COOK THE PASTA & BEANS Add the FARFALLE to the saucepan of boiling water and cook for 10 minutes or until just tender (al dente). In the last 2 minutes of cooking time, add the GREEN BEANS. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Drizzle with OLIVE OIL to prevent sticking, toss to coat and cover to keep warm.
  3. COOK THE ONION While the pasta is cooking, heat a drizzle of OLIVE OIL in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the RED ONION and cook for 3 - 4 minutes, or until just softened.
  4. COOK THE CHICKEN Add the CHICKEN STRIPS to the pan with the onion and cook for 5 - 6 minutes, or until cooked through. (Be sure to avoid overcrowding the pan by keeping the chicken to a single layer. This helps the chicken brown and not stew in the juices. If necessary cook in batches. Season with a pinch of SALT & PEPPER. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
  5. BRING EVERYTHING TOGETHER Add the CHICKEN STRIPS, RED ONION, PESTO and a pinch of SALT to the bowl with the FARFALLE and GREEN BEANS. Season again if necessary. Add the BABY SPINACH LEAVES and toss together.
  6. SERVE UP Divide the warm pesto chicken and bow-tie pasta between bowls. Top with the FLAKED PARMESAN CHEESE. ENJOY!

  • Yum! I love this as a new pasta option for our family. We love pasta dishes in our house and I seem to trot out the same ones all the time. Can’t wait to try this one.


  • Looks nice ! Not all of us love green beans, I would use mushrooms instead (as mushrooms, spinach and pesto is a great combi). I would serve the chicken separate as I family is partly vegetarian.


  • Love this recipe – I’d leave out the Parmesan cheese and substitute snow peas for spinach and it would be a happy companion in this house.


  • Such a bright and fresh recipe – we love trying different pastas and sauces!


  • Mushrooms are so delicious in lasagna – any reason to add mushrooms and to eat mushrooms is good.

    • Oops – this comment is for the lasagna recipe.
