With beautiful, juicy tomatoes and a generous topping of parmesan, there is so much to love with this pasta. It's actually quite balanced too- we've got lots of protein in our chicken, and some spinach thrown in for colour.  This creamy chicken and tomato pasta has been my recent go-to because of how simple, yet delicious it is.

Is this a healthy pasta?

I am a firm believer that all foods can fit in a healthy lifestyle! This pasta is slightly more heavy than some of the other recipes on my blog but that doesn’t mean it isn’t healthy!  It’s full of protein, has some fresh vegetables added and pasta is a great source of carbohydrates (you can even use whole wheat pasta for additional fibre).

Top Tips!

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Make sure you are using a large enough pan- once everything is added together, it will get very full! To make gluten-free, use gluten-free pasta of choice. To make vegetarian, leave out the chicken and just make a creamy tomato pasta!
