Creamy Chicken and Tomato Pesto Pasta Bake

Creamy Chicken and Tomato Pesto Pasta Bake

Chunks of chicken, slathered in a creamy, cheesy pesto sauce and turned into a comforting pasta bake

I love a good Pasta Bake, especially when it promises cheesiness and creaminess. Nom, nom, nom. It’s just a great comforting meal. It’s easy. You can literally make it with whatever ingredients you have to hand and add pasta and cheese. It’s such a humble and homely dish which are 2 things I happen to enjoy when it comes to food.

Yep, this is big dish of heaven right here. Like a comforting blanket in Winter. Ok, so I know it’s not Winter here in Oz right now but that’s never stopped me from devouring a perfect plate of belly warming goodness like this.

So here we go. This Creamy Chicken and Tomato Pesto Pasta Bake is a mouthful in more ways than one.  We start with some good basic pasta, some good basic chicken. We add a good dash of paprika and pesto, then cheeeeeese 🙂 There is actually only 110g total cheese in this whole dish but the creamy white sauce makes it go much further and become so much creamier than it could alone. It’s almost like a mac and cheese with some tomato pesto and chicken, that is then baked. Ok, ok. It’s nothing like mac and cheese.
