Chicken, Asparagus & Herb Pasta

To help you make every day more herbilicious each month we’re going to share with you a month’s worth of our favourite recipes, all (well almost all!) including fresh herbs. For May we’re focusing on protein so all of these recipes are either high in protein or include a high protein ingredient such as salmon, cheese or eggs. Protein is important because it can help in building and repairing muscles, and providing satiety against hunger) – Stay tuned for a blog post all about protein coming soon, but in the meantime we hope you enjoy these recipes as much as us.
