Creamy chicken pasta

Elevate a store cupboard standby with a delicious shallot and herb sauce, packed with vegetable and teaming with flavour


  • 3-4 chicken breast fillets cut into large chunks
  • 300g butternut squash, diced
  • 250g courgettes, cut into chunks
  • 200g dried pasta, we like Pappardelle
  • 150g button mushrooms, sliced
  • 210g Cook with M&S shallot and herb paste
  • 300ml double cream or crème fraîche
  • 180g bag of baby spinach leaves
  • Small bunch of parsley, finely chopped

Serves: 4


  1. Using a large saucepan, cook the pasta in boiling water for 8-10 minutes, so it still retains some bite. Drain.
  2. Cook the butternut squash in a pan of boiling water for 3-4 minutes. Drain thoroughly.
  3. Mix the squash, pasta and spinach together in a pan. Leave to stand.
  4. Heat a little oil in a deep frying pan or wok. Stir-fry the chicken, courgette and mushrooms for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the paste, fill the decanted jar with cold water and stir this in together with the cream. Simmer for 6-7 minutes.
  5. Tip the creamy chicken mixture onto the pasta mixture, fold through. Garnish with chopped parsley.
