    Ingredients

    250g pack Soli Speck & Smoked Cheese Tortelloni
    150g trimmed fine green beans
    4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    2 tbsp Mazzetti Balsamic Vinegar Of Modena
    130g British Cooked Chicken Lemon & Herb Pieces
    1 red chicory head
    40-50g watercress

    1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add 1 tsp sea salt. Add the pasta and green beans and cook for 4 minutes. Drain well and place in a large serving bowl or on a large platter.

    4. When the pasta and green beans are cool, toss in the chicken pieces, chicory, watercress and tomatoes, then pour over the remaining dressing. Gently mix together until everything is evenly coated. Serve topped with extra ground black pepper.
