Current Favourite Quick Meal - Cheesy Asparagus and Chicken Parpadelle

This has become a recent favourite (and I am just a bit chuffed that it was just a throw together that turned out well!)

Cook up some parpadelle egg noodles.
While they are cooking chop 3 bacon rashers, 1 chicken breast (or more if you like lots of meat) and mince about 3 cloves of garlic.  Fry together in a frying pan with a glug of olive oil.

When it is looking done add a bunch of thinly sliced asparagus and a big dollop (about 1/2 the jar) of Kraft Cream Cheese spreadable.  Turn the heat down and stir through so that the sauce is the right consistency.  You might want to add pepper at this point but don't add salt as the bacon and cream cheese are strong enough.  Don't drain your pasta too well as a bit of liquid helps the sauce to coat the pasta.

Mix altogether. Dish up and put shaved parmesan on top.

My kids have requested this in our fortnightly rotation and it has become one of my hubby's top 3 favs!
Best of all it is quick and requires little or no thought which is ideal for a busy work afternoon!
