Cook: +- 20 minutes | Servings: serves 6

ONE-POT CHEESY CHICKEN PASTA

  • ½ cup diced bacon (100 g)
  • ½ a punnet mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 chicken breasts, cubed (540 g)
  • 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning
  • 1 packet Fatti’s and Moni’s Bellissimo Bucatini pasta (500 g)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups baby spinach, optional
  • 1 cup cream (250 ml)
  • 1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese
  • lemon and parsley for serving

In a large shallow pot, sauté the bacon bits for 2 – 3 minutes on a medium heat until the fat has rendered.
Add the chicken and cajun seasoning to the pot and sauté for 2 – 3 minutes until the chicken has lightly browned.
In the same pot, add 4 cups of boiling water, the pasta and the salt.
(Chef’s Tip: Use the same pot to retain all the flavor).
Cook the pasta, half covered, for 10 – 12 minutes or until al denté, stirring occasionally.
Add the spinach, cream and cheese to the pot. Toss the pasta over the heat for 3 – 4 minutes until well combined.
Garnish with lemon zest, a squeeze of lemon juice and freshly chopped parsley.
