I love pasta bake. You can put loads of veggies, mix a whole bunch of flavours, its totally easy and it freezes well. And I have yet to meet anyone that doesn't like them, which makes it a good dish for company.
I made one tonight and decided to share it with you. This is the version I most frequently make. I'm not a huge fan of broccoli, but I like it in this so I put a whole bunch in and leave out other veggies. But its also good with zucchini, mushrooms, carrots, asparagus - pretty much any vegetables you and your family like.
Chicken and Broccoli Pasta Bake
large head of broccoli
4 chicken breasts
2 tins of cream soup (I used Weight Watchers chicken soup and Erin low fat cream of mushroom soup)
2 cups pasta (I used whole wheat fusili)
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
Put a pot of water on to boil and add the pasta. Cook until its al dente.
Get everything together
Chop up the broccoli, onion and chicken
Add the onion and chicken to a pan and cook until the chicken is no longer pink.
Once the chicken is done, throw in the broccoli
Continue to cook until the broccoli starts to soften, maybe 3-5 minutes. We still want the broccoli to have a bit of crunch.
Add the broccoli/chicken/onion mixture to the pasta.
Throw the tins of soup on top and mix together. Put in a dish, top with cheese and bake until bubbling and the cheese is melted.
Serve with a side salad and enjoy with pleasure :)
