  • 1/2 cup torn fresh basil leaves, plus extra to serve

  • 4 (about 600g) pre-crumbed chicken schnitzels

  • 100g (1 cup) coarsely grated mozzarella

  • 20g (1/4 cup) finely grated parmesan

4 Method Steps

  • Step 1

    Lightly grease a 20 x 27cm (base measurement) baking dish.

  • Step 2

    Cook pasta in a large saucepan of salted boiling water following packet directions or until al dente. Drain. Wipe the pan dry.

  • Step 3

    Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 6 minutes or until softened. Reserve 60ml (1/4 cup) of pasta sauce and set aside. Add remaining pasta sauce and 80ml (1/3 cup) water. Cover and simmer for 3 minutes. Stir in pasta and basil. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until well combined. Spoon mixture into prepared tray.

  • Step 4

    Preheat grill to high. Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook schnitzels, in 2 batches, turning, for 5-6 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Place on top of pasta in prepared dish. Spoon over the reserved pasta sauce. Sprinkle with the mozzarella and parmesan. Grill for 3-4 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Sprinkle with extra basil to serve.
