It might not have meat in it, but it certainly is filling and flavourful. The pesto works so well with the quorn, while the asparagus, tomatoes and peppers bring a nice colour and crunch.  A delicious vegetarian dish that is low carb, high protein, and so easy to make. The quorn chicken pieces are so versatile, and can be used in so many dinner dishes.
