1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk the egg white and olive oil. Brush the mixture over the chicken breasts.

2. In a small bowl, mix together the almond meal, ½ cup of the Parmesan cheese and pepper to taste. Roll the chicken into the dry mixture until it’s completely coated.

3. In a pan over medium heat, gently fry the coated chicken breasts until they’re golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

4. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 2 minutes. Strain while the pasta is still slightly hard.

5. Mix the pasta with the tomato sauce and separate into two parts. Place the first part in a casserole dish and top with ½ cup of the mozzarella cheese. Layer the remaining pasta on top. Place the chicken on top and layer on the remaining ½ cup Parmesan and ½ cup mozzarella.

6. Bake until the cheese starts to slightly brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
