Ingredients

  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 250g tagliatelle
  • 300g leftover (or pre-cooked chicken), diced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 250g chestnut mushrooms, quartered
  • 250g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 200g double cream
  • 800ml water
  • 1 vegetable stockpot
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Basil and parmesan, to garnish

Instructions

  1. Thinly slice the onion, quarter the mushrooms and half the tomatoes.
  2. Heat a large casserole with 2tbsp oil on medium heat. Add the onion and mushrooms and sauté for 4-5 minutes until the onion starts to soften and the mushrooms turn golden.
  3. Add the tagliatelle, cream, water and stockpot to the casserole and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and leave to simmer for 6-7 minutes before stirring in the tomatoes and chicken. Continue to simmer the pasta for 2-3 minutes, or until al-dente. Remember to stir occasionally to avoid pasta sticking to the casserole.
  4. Season to your liking with salt and pepper and serve in bowls garnished with freshly grated parmesan and basil.
