@Raisedbyguineapigs I use either kingsmill wholemeal thins, a Weightwatchers wrap, a schar ciabatta or A Bfree wrap. Using my HE Bchoice. I use tomato purée or pasatta, then HE cheese. Mozzarella from the savers range at Morrison’s is 55g and whatever topping.

Another option is Pizza topped chicken. I cut a chicken breast in half and top with pasatta and cheese and mushrooms and onion are lovely too. Serve with sw chips and salad x

What’s the recipe for the cajun chicken pasta please?

Groovee Wed 18-Oct-17 22:52:54


I use one onion, lots of mushrooms and you can add peppers. Fry up chicken, add in the veg, sprinkle 2 tsp of Cajun spice and mix well. Lower the heat and add in half a tub of Gogo cheddar cheese spread per person. Mix until melted, then add in pasta. I then stir spinach through too.
