You will need
a food processor or hand blender
Sharp knife
Large frying pan
Tongs or fish slice to turn over the meat
Potato peeler
Medium sized saucepan
Sieve or colander

Pre- preparation
Make sure that all of your ingredients are laid out and that all of your pans are already on the heat.

Method for pork loin
1. Wash the sage leaves and place in a food processor with the almonds, garlic, cheese and 3 tablespoons of oil. Blitz for 20 seconds until you create a smooth sage pesto.

2. Using a sharp knife, make small cuts on the edges of the slices of pork so when you cook them the meat will not curl.

3. Spread the sage pesto on 8 slices of pork and cover with the remaining 8 creating a sandwich effect.

4. In a large frying pan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil and start to fry the pork sandwiches on one side for 2-3 minutes.

5. Turn the meat over and continue to cook for a further 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

6. Pour in the wine and continue to cook for 4 minutes turning the meat at least once more.

7. Once ready, serve immediately 2 meat sandwiches per portion.

Method for courgette salad
1. Wash the courgettes and slice thinly lengthways using a swivel-blade potato peeler. Cook in a medium sized saucepan with boiling water for 1 minute. Drain and place in a large bowl.

2. Grate over the zest of ½ of the lemon and squeeze in the juice of the whole lemon.

3. Add in the cannellini beans with the chives and parsley, season with salt and pepper. Pour in the oil and mix well.

4. Leave to marinade for 2 minutes before serving.
