Chicken & Pasta Bake (with a mexican twist)

20180203_173806

Two exciting things happened today, I used my new pasta toy from Kitchenaid and made fresh pasta for the first time, then I created an amazing bake and baked it using my automatic baked pasta setting on my Hotpoint oven……such a great day in my kitchen today. I love it when new Technology just work!

 

Serves 2 large portions or 4 smaller portions

150g cooked pasta (see my Fresh pasta Recipe)

2 chicken breasts – cut into bite size pieces

1 yellow and 1 red pepper – cut into slices

1 red onion – cut into wedges

200g Quark

120ml Chicken Stock

1 tsp dried garlic granules

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp dried oregano

Salt & pepper to taste

1 tin chopped tomatoes

Grated Cheddar Cheese – quantity to suit your tastes (We love our cheese here…lol!)

 

  1. Heat a little oil in a pan on the hob, medium to high heat.
  2. Gently brown the vegetables, chicken, spices and season.
  3. Meanwhile cook your pasta.                                           20180203_155437
  4. Spoon about 2-3 tbsps of the tin tomatoes into a baking dish, then start to layer up the bake. I put pasta on next, then chicken, then vegetables, then rest of tomatoes.
  5. Make up the stock and mix the quark in to make a thick sauce, then pour over the bake in the dish.                     20180203_160435
  6. Set your oven (if you have a Hotpoint Class 9) to Baked Pasta and Cannelloni setting. If not, try 180 deg for approx 25-30 minutes.                 20180203_170123
  7. When you have 15 minutes left, sprinkle on the grated cheese and bake until golden and crisp on top.                                      20180203_172013
