Chicken Pesto with Wholewheat Penne Pasta

This is an upgrade from a regular pesto pasta and one of our most popular meals. A high-quality **whole-wheat pasta, with free-range *chicken, extra virgin olive oil, Kefalotiri cheese, cherry tomatoes and courgettes. This pasta is just as good as the old Italian mamma makes.

* chicken: our meat is hormone, steroid and routine antibiotic free. 

**whole-wheat pasta: This is one of the few meals where we allowed wheat, we felt that whole-wheat pasta was easier on the stomach than most alternatives. Whole-wheat pasta is way higher in fibre than white pasta and high-fibre makes all the difference (whole wheat pasta is 3 or more times higher in fibre).
