Quick Creamy Chicken & Bacon Fusilli

with Baby Spinach & Parmesan

Once you realise how quickly you can make a creamy pasta sauce from scratch, you'll never use the jarred stuff again. In this weeknight winner, the herby chicken tenders, tender silverbeet and al dente pasta happily soak up the garlic and herb-laced sauce, which gets an extra boost of flavour from our signature Aussie spice blend. Serve with a sprinkle of sharp Parmesan and you're done!

• Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. • Cut chicken tenderloins into 2cm chunks.


• Cook fusilli in the boiling water until ‘al dente’, 11 minutes. • Reserve some pasta water (1/2 cup for 2 people / 1 cup for 4 people), then drain fusilli and return pasta to saucepan.

TIP: 'Al dente' pasta is cooked through but still slightly firm in the centre.


• Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When oil is hot, cook chicken and diced bacon, tossing occasionally, breaking bacon up with a spoon, until golden, 5-6 minutes. • Add garlic & herb seasoning and Aussie spice blend and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. • Add thickened cream, baby spinach leaves and cooked fusilli to the pan. Cook, stirring, until cream is warmed through and spinach is just wilted, 1-2 minutes. • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove pan from heat.

TIP: Chicken is cooked through when it's no longer pink inside. TIP: Add some reserved pasta water to the pan if the sauce looks too thick!


• Divide creamy chicken and bacon fusilli between bowls. • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese to serve. Enjoy!
