  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 3 Garlic Cloves
  • 2 Red Chilies

  • 1 tablespoon Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic

Instructions
 

  • Toss the chicken with sea salt, black pepper, fennel seeds, and rosemary leaves on the greaseproof paper. Fold the chicken in the paper and flatten it with the help of a rolling pin.
  • In a pan, add the olive oil and fry the chicken with crushed garlic cloves and chillies. Turn after a few minutes until it turns golden.
  • Add the beans, after cutting their stalks, in a casserole pan and boil in salted water cook for a few minutes.
  • In a grinder, add almonds, parmesan, olive oil, and lemon juice and basil leaves after ripping the stalks. Leave some basil leaves for garnishing.
  • Add the garlic to the same grinder, add the cooking water of beans and salt. Blend until smooth.
  • Cut the Lasagna sheets into square sheets and add to the pan with beans. Cook for a few minutes. Add tomatoes to the pan with the chicken and stir vigorously.
  • In the pasta pan, add the spinach. Cook it for a few minutes. Then, drain the water, reserving a small cup of pasta water. Return the pasta, beans, and spinach to the pan and add the pesto. Cook it and add water until it will become smooth in texture.
  • Chop the chicken breasts in half and serve with the tomatoes and chilli over the top. Grate the parmesan over the pasta and add basil leaves over the dish.
