Super Simple Chicken And Sweet Red Pepper Pasta Bake

Ingredients
  • 3 Red Peppers
  • 4 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Packet of pasta
  • 2 Chicken breasts
  • White Cheddar
  • Parmesan
  • Chicken Stock
  • Cream

Who doesn't love a really good pasta bake? All those lovely little chewy bits on top mixed with all the nice cheese. Absolutely fucking gorgeous if you ask me. It was tricky to come up with a recipe that has just seven ingredients but this is it and the best thing is that it doesn't even take 20 minutes from start to finish. You can lash this in the oven, go and stick your washing on, have a shower and come back and have it piping hot coming out of the oven. What I love most about it is that it tastes just as good if not better the next day!

Instructions

Step 1

The ingredients are super simple and you'll find them all in a local small supermarket.

Step 21

Grate another load of parmesan cheese over the pasta

Step 22

Grate cheddar cheese on top of that to completely cover the pasta. It doesn't have to be an exact science but if you like it nice and cheesy go really heavy on the cheese. Once you've done that fuck it in to the oven at 180C for about 10-15 minutes

Step 23

Take it out of the oven when it is nice and golden brown. Take it out of the oven and serve it up immediately.

So there you go a simple pasta bake that couldn't be easier to make. I've kept it this simple on purpose so as you can add in as many ingredients as you want yourself. I'd suggest that herbs, additional veggies or even different cheeses would be a great way to add your unique stamp on this. make a batch of this on a Sunday night and you are fucking laughing for lunch or dinners for the rest of the week.
