Chicken Sundried Tomato and Mozzarella Pasta

Chicken Sundried Tomato and Mozzarella Pasta ~ Creamy, delicious and so full of flavor ~ large dish recipe ! #ChickenRecipe #PastaDish #PastaChicken

I can not begin to tell you how delicious this Chicken Sundried Tomato and Mozzarella Pasta is. This is one of those meals where you just can not stop eating until it is all gone.

The Sundried Tomatoes and Mushrooms are a great combination and teamed up with Chicken and mix it all in a pasta, you have one very delightful meal which the whole family would love.

To make it extra special, the Cottage Cheese layer just under the Mozzarella makes the dish creamy - not too much, just enough.

I used a Cheese Sauce made from a packet, but instead of adding boiling water, I prepared mine with Milk. You can use any Cheese Sauce you like, home made, ready made from the store or from a dry mix as I did.

Want saucier ? Simply add more Cheese Sauce until you are happy ;-)


Serves : 6 - 8


500g Chicken Fillets
Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
1 - 2 TB Olive Oil
500g Fusilli Pasta

1 TB Olive Oil
2 t Fresh Garlic, crushed
1/4 cup Sundried Tomatoes, chopped
250g Mushrooms, sliced
1 cup Cheese Sauce {homemade or store-bought}
1/4 cup Double Cream

1 cup Smooth, Plain Cottage Cheese
1 cup Mozzarella Cheese, grated


1.) Season the Chicken Fillets with Salt and Pepper - heat the some Olive Oil in a griddle pan and grill until done - cut into strips and set aside.
2.) Meanwhile, cook the Pasta as per the instructions on the packet - drain and return to saucepan.
3.) Heat the 1 TB Olive Oil in a pan - saute the Garlic and Tomatoes for 1 minute - add the Mushrooms and stir-fry until soft.
4.) Stir in the Cheese Sauce and Cream - heat through - add to the Pasta together with the Chicken strips.
5.) Spoon mixture into a large oven dish, sprayed with cooking oil.
6.) Spread the Cottage Cheese over the pasta - sprinkle with the Mozzarella Cheese.
7.) Place under the oven grill and grill until the Cheese has melted and turns light brown.

Serve immediately with salads or a vegetable side or two.
