I don’t usually post much about meals or recipes on here but I really wanted to share with you my favourite pasta dish.
Schwartz have gifted me an italian herb seasoning but all views are my own. I usually mix together my own herb selection but it is handy that you can get an Italian herb seasoning!
Most of the time I like to have a tomato sauce with my pasta, I usually make this myself with passata, herbs and garlic. I also like to grate some cheese on the top sometimes. Nick is happy to have pasta for dinner but prefers to have chicken with it too so I will be sharing with you a chicken based pasta.
What I used:
You can really just make it up as you along with regards to measurements as we all have different tastes! I am making dinner for two people(myself and Nick) but I won’t be having chicken so I have only used one breast.
I started off by heating the oven to 180 and I then seasoned the chicken with the italian herb mix and some garlic. I usually cook chicken in the oven for 30-40 mins.
Whilst this was in the oven I measured out the pasta. I always find it hard to measure it so roughly how for two handfuls per person.
I then started making the sauce. I used a carton of passata and I then cut up some garlic to add and also added in the italian herb mix. You can buy your own tomato based pasta sauces but I always prefer to make my own. You can also add salt and pepper if you wanted or add in some onion.
I usually boil the pasta for ten minutes and heat the sauce for about five so after everything is prepped I can clear up before I need to boil the pasta.
You can either mix the sauce in with pasta once it’s cooked or serve the pasta and add the sauce to the top. I like to put the chicken on the top to make it look more presentable. You can also add cheese or something else on top of you want. There are so many variations of this meal you can do and I live how easy the italian herb mix is to use!
