Chicken pasta salad with pesto

A great way to use up leftover chicken from a roast; otherwise buy a pack of cooked strips of chicken.

Cook 150-200g pasta according to packet instructions (I like using wholewheat fusilli).
Prepare salad by shredding some lettuce and quartering a handful of baby tomatoes.
Heat up the chicken by microwaving for a few minutes. Make sure it's piping hot.
Microwave a tin of runner beans for 2-3 minutes.
Once pasta is cooked, drain it and stir in 3-4 tsp green pesto. Add the runner beans and chicken and mix well.
Serve up the green salad with the pasta mix on top. You can also add black pepper for seasoning.
