Chicken broccoli stilton pasta bake is a delicious easy family meal. It’s relatively healthy, low cost and can be on the table in less than an hour. An excellent quick healthy meal!
At the moment, when I’m putting together new recipes, I’m all about back to basics.
With the new job, I’ve limited time to cook but I still want something wholesome and substantial whilst still being extremely tasty for dinner!
That’s why I’m so into dishes like this delicious family chicken broccoli stilton pasta bake.
Don’t you think that cheese and pasta just go so well together?
I’ve been in love for such a long time with that combination, which I used here in this tuna macaroni bake recipe.
That’s been such a popular recipe here on my blog, I thought it was time to add another such cheesy pasta dish.
This one will tantalise the taste buds and make your eyes pop, when you see all that lovely golden delicious melted cheese coming out of the oven! 🙂
I just wanted to say that it’s always a real thrill for me when you folks take the time to click, comment or just read through any of my recipes or blog posts.
There’s honestly been times in the last few weeks where I wondered if I’d promised too much, with posting two new weekly recipes. I was pushing myself so hard, especially with having just started a brand new job, I got myself really stressed out at times.
But, I seem to be just about keeping up, albeit with maybe the odd slip up you’ll need to forgive me for!
Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks to you all! 😀
And onto the chicken broccoli stilton pasta bake……..
As this is such a filling dish, I find there’s no need to add much to it, if anything, to accompany. Maybe some extra vegetables like green beans, or a light mixed leafy salad usually do us.
You could also leave out the chicken from the recipe if you wanted to, but I wanted something to add plenty of protein to this dish, and to give it that extra “bite” too. The addition of the chicken does that nicely!
