Ingredients: (Serves 1)
40g Wholemeal Pasta
1tsp Rapeseed Oil
1 Chicken Breast
3 Sprigs Basil
3 Springs Parsley
1 Lemon (juice)
1 Garlic clove

Put the wholegrain spaghetti in a saucepan of boiling water and cook until al dente. Dice the chicken breast and pan fry in a little rapeseed oil. Remove from heat once cooked through. In a blender mix together the basil, parsley, avocado, lemon juice, crushed garlic and sea salt until smooth. Spiralize the courgette and add to the spaghetti for the last 1-2 mins. Strain and return to the saucepan. Stir the chicken and avocado sauce into the spaghetti/courghetti. Swirl pasta around and serve on a plate, slice cherry tomatoes and arrange around the edge, finally garnish with a basil leaf.
