INGREDIENTS

  • 600 ml (1 pint) skimmed milk
  • 40 g (1 1/2 oz) plain flour, sieved
  • Pepper
  • 200 g (7 oz) tri-colour pasta twists
  • 250 g (8 oz) boneless, skinless chicken breast, cooked and diced
  • 50 g (2 oz) fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs

INSTRUCTIONS

1 Place the milk and flour in a saucepan and bring to the boil over gentle heat, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens. Simmer for 1 further minute, stirring frequently, then season generously with pepper.

2 Meanwhile, cook the pasta twists in a large pan of boiling water according to the manufacturer’s instructions until just tender. Drain well.

3 Stir the chicken into the sauce and pour into a 2.4 litre/4 pint shallow ovenproof dish. Spoon the pasta twists over the sauce, pressing them in lightly, without submerging them completely.

4 Sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the top of the pasta and bake in a preheated oven, 190°C (375° F), Gas Mark 5, for about 20 minutes until the breadcrumbs are golden and crisp. Serve hot.
