Chef Ray – Chicken and Broccoli Cheesy Pasta Bake

Qwik and easy to prepare, this is a flavoursome and delicious meal.

From: Ray, Kerrie; (June 2013) Bakes Delight in: Healthy Food Guide

Serves 6

  • 350g pasta shapes such as bows
  • 3 cups chopped (250g) broccoli, cut into small pieces
  • olive oil spray
  • 400g lean chicken breast, chopped
  • 200g brown capped mushrooms, (3 cups) sliced
  • 2-3 tablespoons sun-dried tomato pesto
  • 80 very low-fat soft cheese spread with garlic and herbs (I use Philadelphia Extra Light)
  • ½ cup light evaporated milk
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 75g reduced-fat grated cheese
  • 50g flaked almonds
  1. Adding pasta to a large pan of boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Add broccoli and cook for 3-4 more minutes. Drain, return to the pan and remove from heat. Lightly grease a large ovenproof dish.
  2. Spray a non-stick pan with oil and cook chicken until lightly browned. Add mushrooms with a little more spray and cook for a few more minutes.
  3. Add pesto, soft cheese and milk. Heat through, stirring. Pour sauce over pasta. Add spinach and chopped tomatoes. Spoon into ovenproof dish. Sprinkle with cheese and almonds. Bake for 20-25 minutes and garnish with chopped fresh herbs if you prefer.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.
