Creamy Cheesy Chicken Pasta

This may sound weird but I love getting leftover ingredients in my fridge and pantry. Why? It forces me to become creative with my dishes.

The prospects: one carrot, half a bag of rice and corn tube pasta, one tetra pack cream, 1/4 block of cheese, 1 tomato, 2 chicken breast fillets.

The result:

Of course it was wonderful!

Cut the chicken into bite size pieces. Fry in EVOO. While waiting for the chicken to cook, grate the carrot. When the chicken is cooked, add chopped garlic and onions. Cook until fragrant. Add the carrots. Pour the cream. Add the grated cheese. Season with sea salt and pepper and mix in the cooked tube pasta. As for the tomatoes, I seasoned them with EVOO,  salt and pepper and popped them in the oven. Too bad we chucked the tomatoes because they were too sour. No, they’re not rotten. They were just really sour.

If you have an oven, I suggest you transfer your pasta to an ovenproof dish and pop in the oven for 5 minutes just to blend all the flavors together. This is another sneaky way to feed kids (and grownups) vegetables.
