Instructions

• Boil the kettle. Half-fill a medium saucepan with the boiled water and heat over a high heat. Add a pinch of salt, then bring to the boil. • Cook penne in the boiling water until 'al dente', 12 minutes. • Reserve some pasta water (1/3 cup for 2 people / 2/3 cup for 4 people), then drain pasta and return to saucepan.

TIP: 'Al dente' pasta is cooked through but still slightly firm in the centre. Little cooks: Older kids, help add the pasta to the saucepan under adult supervision. Be careful, the water is boiling!

• Cut chicken breast into 2cm chunks. • In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over high heat. Cook chicken, tossing occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 5-6 minutes each side (cook in batches if your pan is getting crowded). • Add diced bacon and sliced mushroom, breaking bacon up with a spoon, until browned, 3-4 minutes. • Add garlic paste and Italian herbs and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.

TIP: The chicken is cooked when it is no longer pink inside.

• Add light cooking cream, reserved pasta water and vegetable stock powder to the pan and cook, stirring, until heated through, 30 seconds. • Add cooked penne, Parmesan cheese and baby spinach leaves. Cook, tossing, until spinach is just wilted, 1-2 minutes. • Remove from heat. Season with pepper.

TIP: Add a splash of pasta water to loosen the sauce, if needed!

• Halve snacking tomatoes (see ingredients). Grate carrot. • In a large bowl, combine a drizzle of the balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Season, then add mixed salad leaves, carrot and snacking tomatoes. Toss to combine. • Divide creamy chicken, bacon and herb penne between bowls. • Serve with tomato salad. Enjoy!

Little cooks: Lend a hand by combining the ingredients for the dressing and tossing the salad!
