  • 3 cups chopped (250g) broccoli cut into small pieces
  • olive oil spray
  • 400 g lean chicken breast chopped
  • 200 g brown capped mushrooms (3 cups) sliced
  • 2-3 Tbsp sun-dried tomato pesto

Instructions

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Notes

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.
