Boil the kettle. Add the boiling water to a medium saucepan and return to the boil. Add the fusilli pasta to the boiling water and cook until ‘al dente’, 11 minutes. Drain and return to the saucepan.

TIP: 'Al dente' pasta is cooked through but still slightly firm in the centre.


While the pasta is cooking, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Cook the chicken breast strips and Aussie spice blend, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes.


While the chicken is cooking, roughly chop the tomato. In a small bowl, combine the garlic aioli, Dijon mustard and grated Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper.


When you're ready to pack your lunch, stir the tomato, baby spinach leaves, spiced chicken and cheesy mustard dressing through the fusilli. Season to taste. Divide between two containers. Refrigerate.

TIP: This pasta salad is best enjoyed cooled!
