• Boil the kettle. Trim and halve green beans. Cut chicken breast into 2cm chunks. • Half-fill a medium saucepan with the boiling water. Add risoni and cook until 'al dente' 7-8 minutes. • Drain, then return risoni to the pan.
TIP: 'Al dente' risoni is cooked through but still slightly firm in the centre.
• Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. • When oil is hot, cook chicken and green beans, tossing occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes. • In the last 1-2 minutes of cook time, add garlic & herb seasoning and toss to coat.
• Transfer chicken and green beans to the cooked risoni. Add salad leaves, basil pesto, chargrilled capsicum relish (see ingredients) and 1/2 the grated Parmesan cheese. Stir until combined, then season to taste.
• Divide chicken and pesto risoni between bowls. • Sprinkle over remaining Parmesan cheese to serve.
