Chicken & Bacon Pasta Bake

Inspired by Baking Heaven Magazine and a recipe from Waitrose that appeared in their magazine this month, tonight i made…

Chicken & Bacon Pasta Bake

  • 1 Bag Penne pasta
  • 1 Cooked Chicken
  • 3 Waitrose Cheese Sauces for Pasta
  • 1 Pack Streaky Smoked Bacon
  • 1 Bag grated Mozarella
  1. Cook pasta in boiling water until tender. While its cooking chop the streaky bacon and fry until crispy.
  2. Drain pasta and put back in the saucepan. Add cheese sauces, bacon and meat from the chicken, mix and season.
  3. Place in an ovenproof dish and scatter cheese over.
  4. Bake in the oven until golden on top.

If i was making this for me and The Hubster i would go for Mackerel, or at least add onions…but what can you do? Kids eh 😉

I served it with a bread from the machine. I thought i’d experiment with bread mixes, and this one sounded interesting…
Unfortunately, what sounded so promising ended up stinking the house out…too much garlic in my opinion 😦
For dessert we had Paul Hollywoods Heather Honey Sponge which teetered very closely to being a complete disaster lol. I steamed it for nearly 2 hours in the end (the recipe says 1 and 1/4 hours) and even then it wasn’t done…i ended up whacking it in the oven for 20 minutes lol. Which, come to think of it, wasn’t a bad idea because it gave the edges a slight crunch lol
Had it with Waitrose Madagascan Custard…what? Did you really think i’d make my own custard after cooking all that lot today? 😉

So why should i make my own custard when there are so many great pre-made ones available?
