One-Pot Cheesy Chicken Pasta

Serves 6

Hands-on time: 30 minutes


½ cup (100g) diced bacon

3 (540g) chicken breasts, cubed

1 tbsp Cajun seasoning

1 packet (500g) Fatti’s & Moni’s Bellissimo Bucatini pasta

½ tsp salt

2 cups baby spinach (optional)

1 cup (250ml) cream

1 cup grated mozzarella

Serving suggestion: Lemon



1. In a large shallow pot, sauté the bacon bits for 2-3 minutes on a medium heat until the fat has rendered. Add the chicken and Cajun seasoning to the pot and sauté for 2-3 minutes until the chicken has lightly browned.

2. In the same pot, add 4 cups of boiling water, Fatti’s & Moni’s Bellissimo Bucatini pasta and the salt. *Chef’s Tip: Use the same pot to retain all the flavour!

3. Cook the pasta, half covered, for 10-12 minutes or until al denté, stirring occasionally.

4. Add the spinach, cream and cheese to the pot. Toss the pasta over the heat for 3-4 minutes until well combined.

5. Garnish with lemon zest, a squeeze of lemon juice and freshly chopped parsley and ENJOY!
