Fettuccine with Grilled Chicken, Tomatoes, Basil and Parsley

It’s getting to the middle of the week and you need a bit of a flavour hit, but it needs to be simple and easy to get you over the hump.

Keep a little Gourmet Garden goodness in your fridge for just such a culinary emergency and you will always be able to put together something exciting and appetizing – something like this Fettucine with Grilled Chicken, Tomatoes, Basil and Parsley though I think we would swap the tomatoes for something else, snow peas probably.

Give your meals a mid-week makeover with this scrumptious pasta.
