Description

Who knew that a small pack of sundried tomato, mozzarella balls and pesto could provide a quick easy pasta meal that had so much flavour !
The chicken is optional- leftovers from a roast. This recipe has awesome flavours with or without it. But do add oyster mushrooms if you want some chewy meaty flavours without the chicken.
The pungent rocket provides a perfect note alongside the sweetness of mozzarella. And it all comes together in the time it takes to boil the pasta
