Cooking with Cameron: Easy chicken pesto pasta

This recipe has been developed as a simple flavoured dish. One that is low in Amines and Salicylates, if you have food intolerances with these then this recipe is great for you. The Pesto mix quantities are more than you need for a serving for 4 so divide it up and freeze it.  


  • 500g chicken fillets – diced 
  • 600g curly pasta 
  • 200g green beans chopped  
  • Fresh grated Parmesan cheese 


  • 300g Brussel Sprouts – halved
