Don’t get me flawed, I actually don’t thoughts placing within the time and cooking meals that demand that funding. It all the time pays off in the long run! Nonetheless, typically one is simply drained, however nonetheless, within the temper to eat one thing supper yum. In cases comparable to these, I virtually all the time flip to my tacky rooster pasta bake.

This recipe is straightforward and a straightforward crowd-pleaser. It’s a default when impromptu friends come knocking. It’s unimaginable to not love and simply as troublesome to not savor! That is for sure gonna be amongst your loved ones’s absolute faves!

PREP TIME: 20 min    COOK TIME: 25 min       SERVES: 5


600g of cooked penne pasta

1 cup of pasta water

500 g of deboned and sliced rooster thigh (or breast)

1 small crimson onion, diced

1 tablespoon of garlic

1/2 tablespoon of minced ginger

1/4 cup of chopped dania stems

6 sprigs of contemporary thyme

3 tablespoons of tomato paste

1 tablespoon of curry

1/2 tablespoon of onion powder

1 tablespoon of smoked paprika

1/4 teaspoon of chili

2 tablespoons of parmesan

125 g of freshly grated mozzarella


Start by cooking your pasta (penne) as prescribed on the packet.

Apart from penne, you should use wagon wheels, giant shells, rigatoni or pipe rigate – all accessible in your well-stocked native grocery store. Enable this to prepare dinner till al-dente, and reserve 1 cup of pasta water for use later.

Drain the remaining pasta water and run the cooked penne by a stream of chilly water. This is a crucial step because it prevents the pasta from clamping collectively.

As soon as accomplished, put aside.

Now, we start the cooking. In your sufuria, add some oil and a few salt. Add within the onion, dania (cilantro) stems, thyme, ginger, garlic and sautee till softened and aromatic. An excellent herby base makes for an outstanding meal so this recipe demanded no totally different!

Doesn’t this look so vibrant?

Add within the tomato paste, the retained pasta water and the spices and prepare dinner down for about 5 minutes till the colour intensifies. The pasta water offers a liquid medium for the spices to prepare dinner down in but in addition introduces some starchiness that gorgeously thickens the mchuzi.

Thick texture, wealthy, deep colour. You may take a look at the consistency of the mchuzi from the video at 3.09 – 3.12.

Add within the rooster and permit to prepare dinner. This may take slightly below 5 min as a result of the rooster is sliced in strips which means a bigger uncovered floor space permits for speedier cooking. For this recipe, I used de-boned rooster thighs as that’s what I had at hand. Nonetheless rooster breast would work simply as fantastic. You need your rooster to stay good and juicy so watch out to not overcook it.

Bear in mind, as a result of the rooster is reduce actually small, it’s going to take a short period of time to prepare dinner – actually underneath 10 minutes. Guarantee to not overcook the rooster as we wish to have it stay juicy and tender.

As soon as accomplished add within the cooked pasta, and the parmesan. The parmesan is among the two cheeses we’re utilizing for this dish and it will get launched at this stage. I like the flavour and the way it introduces creaminess to the dish. Combine all of it in.

Add in some chopped dania (cilantro) and provides one closing combine.

As soon as accomplished, pour all this onto a casserole dish, and sprinkle your freshly grated mozzarella excessive. I perceive you should buy already grated mozzarella however freshly grated one will provide you with the flavour and stretch you’ll actually take pleasure in!

Bake for 5-8 minutes till the highest is browned and bubbly. I’ve to say, that is my favourite half; for some motive, I actually get a kick out of watching a tacky bubbly high! You may higher see this in the video from 5.20-5.40.

As soon as accomplished, serve!

Wealthy, tacky, meaty and tremendous filling too! I imply who doesn’t love a fast meal that’s yummy to have too???

I loved the fullness of the garlic and the opposite herbs we had on the very starting! They went so properly with the juicy tenderness of the rooster thighs! I deeply beloved how the 2 cheeses introduced all of it to life and tied all of it collectively.

I served mine with some contemporary greens which reduce by the richness of the cheese and naturally with the tallest, coolest glass of sauvignon blanc! I can not wait to make this once more!

I’m curious, what you’ll serve this with? And I might additionally actually like to know when and who you loved this with. It’s one dish whose yumminess simply must be shared!
