Gotta love a straight to the point post.
So here’s a yummy dinner. Hope you like it.
Smoked chicken pasta bake
1 cup broccoli florets
3 cups cooked macaroni (or other small pasta) – this recipe is great for using up leftover pasta
1 zucchini, grated
1 carrot, peeled, grated
1/2 red capsicum, finely diced
1 cup peas
2 cups diced smoked chicken, skin removed (or you can use regular poached chicken, but I HIGHLY recommend the smoked stuff)
1 tbsp chives or basil or parsley (optional, but nice)
1 cup grated cheddar cheese (plus extra for sprinkling on top)
250g ricotta cheese (use full fat)
125g can creamed corn
Preheat the oven to 170C.
Steam or microwave your broccoli until just tender. (I just throw mine in the microwave for a minute or so). Drain off any liquid, chop into quite small pieces and throw into a large mixing bowl.
Add all the rest of the ingredients into the bowl and mix until really well combined. Season with pepper.
Scoop the lot into a medium baking dish. Press it down firmly and scatter extra cheese over the top. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the top is golden and the rest is bubbling.
Serves 2 adults & 2 kids.
