Creamy Chicken and Bacon Pasta

Lite but creamy pasta with chicken and bacon and your favourite vegetables
This is a meal I cook at home often and it lets me have a beautiful creamy pasta without using cream that is full of fat.

Ingredients

  • 1 375ml can lite evaporated milk

  • 1 large chicken breast sliced

  • 2 rashers bacon sliced

  • 1 spring onion, finely sliced

  • 2 cups of assorted vegetables, sliced, such as mushrooms, carrot, broccoli, zucchini, red capsicum

  • 100 grams cheese, chedder and or parmesan

  • 2 tbl olive oil

  • 1 tsp corn flour

  • .25 cup cold water

  • half a packet of spaghetti

Method

  • 1.

    Cook pasta to packet directions.

  • 2.

    Whilst pasta is cooking heat oil in a large fry pan and add spring onion, cook until it has softened. Add sliced bacon and chicken and cook until it has browned. Add the 2 cups of assorted vegetables and toss throughout chicken mixture. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Add lite carnation milk and bring to a simmer. Cook for 3 minutes then add cheese. Blend cornflour with water and add to sauce mixture stirring well. Cook until sauce has a reasonably thick consistency.

  • 3.

    Drain pasta well and add to fry pay. Mix pasta through sauce and serve.

Notes

If the sauce thickens too much just add regular milk until you get the desired consistently. If the sauce doesn't thicken enough then make another cornflour mixture and add this to the sauce.
