Broccoli & Chicken Pasta Bake

Create this tasty dish using our Broccoli with Cheese Sauce for a quick and easy dinner.

What you need

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet Mash Direct Broccoli with a Cheese Sauce
  • 450g dried penne pasta (use gluten free if desired)
  • 350g diced chicken pieces
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 200g cream cheese with garlic and herbs
  • 50g red pesto
  • 100g mature cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 slice white bread, processed into crumbs (use gluten free if desired)

Recipe method

Preheat oven to 175°C, 350°F, Gas Mark 4.

Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and add all the pasta. Return to the boil.

Cook the pasta until 'al dente' for roughly 7 minutes. Drain the pasta and set aside in the original pan.

Meantime, heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Cook the chicken pieces until they have started to lightly brown and are cooked through to the middle.

Once the chicken is cooked, combine with the pasta in the pot.

Add the cream cheese, red pesto and Mash Direct Broccoli with a Cheese Sauce. Stir the ingredients gently so as not to break up the broccoli florets until well combined.

Pour the mixture into a deep casserole dish (roughly 30cm x 23cm). Top with grated cheese and the breadcrumbs.

Place in the oven for 20 minutes until golden and crisp on top.
