Chicken and Mushroom Pasta, slimming style 

Thought it was time we had a new super slimming style recipe to add to our repertoire. What’s better than a bowl of creamy garlicky Chicken & Mushroom pasta? 

This one is bursting with creamy flavour, chicken, mushrooms, garlic, lots of black pepper and parsley – simply delicious 

And you basically make it all in one pan on the hob in 30-40 Minutes  – boom 🙂 

It’s perfect for a really tasty supper when you’re busy, or just in from work and you need to feed yourself and your family.

Well this is the answer I promise you 

Look at it!

How to serve your Chicken & Mushroom pasta 

You can simply have it as it is straight out the pan 

I like to stir through some spinach at the very end 

Or serve maybe with a lovely tomato salad? 


Other ideas for your Chicken & Mushroom Pasta 

How about adding tarragon instead of parsley?   I think it would be lovely (however I’m really not a tarragon fan)

Or maybe if you fancy a night off the meat, or you’re a vegetarian, just leave out the chicken and double the mushrooms. 

You could use different kinds of mushrooms, chestnut maybe or shiitake? 


The Slimming Deets forbore Pasta supper 

Well it’s free my lovelies 

Apart form the 2 table spoons of Elmlea single cream = 3 Syns 

This means a bowl of this is 1.5 Syns – bingo!! 

And I already know that you will ask ion you can use Quark or formage frais – possibly – but I’m not keen on either – so you’ll have to try.

If you do please let me know in the comments below – many thanks
