"Fromm our weekday newspaper The West Australian. Times are estimated. The recipe called for the parmesan to be added to the pan before serving but as the DH hates parmesan I would grated cheese over the dish when serving in the plate."

Yum! The chicken was so tasty and it was so good with the creamy pasta. I loved the cooking method and the outcome! I can even imagine putting in some peas and carrots to add veggies. The only change I will make next time will be to omit the lemon; it made my sauce curdle a bit - may have been my error - but it was still tasty! Thank you!

We enjoyed this dish even though I used roasted cauliflower instead of the pasta. Easy and good! Thanks for sharing!
