Chicken pasta
This is so beautiful and you can make heaps which lasts for 2 nights in our house. Brown chicken, add garlic. Add veggies (I use whatever we have but nice colors are good) and add 1/2 cup water with 3 tsps chicken stock. Simmer this to infuse the veggies and then add 1 pot of sour cream. Add cooked pasta and mix. Put grated cheese on top and into the oven 180 for 25 mins. DEVINE!

low fat baked pasta.
I do this: saute onion, garlic, celery, carrots. Add chilli flakes, dried oregano and chopped tomatoes and a smidge of brown sugar. Simmer until sauce nice and thick. (Note: in summer I usually also include lots of courgettes). Cook penne pasta until about 2/3 cooked. Mix pasta through sauce and tip into a baking dish. Mix together cottage cheese (250g), 1 egg and 3 tablespoons of yoghurt. Use this as the topping for the baked pasta. Put in 180 degree oven for about 50 - 60 mins. Freezes brilliantly if you want to cut out portions to freeze. I've only given quantities for the cottage cheese topping, the rest just do to your own taste. The topping tastes lovely and rich for something that is low fat and healthy. Enjoy
