ITALIAN CHICKEN ‘PARSTA’

Yeah… Parsta! Parsnip pasta. Spiralising vegetables is my new favourite thing! So many great ways to replace pasta with healthy vegetable (spiralised) alternatives.

Serves: 4ish      Time: 30-45 mins

Ingredients: Butter, chopped onion, crushed/finely chopped garlic, a couple of rashers of bacon, chopped chicken, a few chopped tomatoes, some fresh green veges chopped small, parmesan cheese, fresh basil, a couple of spiralised large parsnips (you’ll need a ‘spiraliser’ – a FANTASTIC kitchen contraption that creates noodles and pasta from veges) salt and pepper, olive oil to serve.

Steps: Saute the onion and garlic in a bit of butter on a medium heat. Add your bacon and cook for a couple of minutes. Add chopped chicken until almost cooked through. Add tomatoes and as many chopped fresh greens as you please. Green means GO! Once the tomato is forming a bit of a sauce, add your spiralised parsnips. Stir it all in together so that the parsnip is getting simmered in the juices. Simmer for about 10 minutes or until the parsnips are softening (or al dente). Towards the end, add as much basil, parmesan, salt and pepper and your heart desires. Serve with more parmesan cheese, and a good drizzle of olive oil. Oh, and some fresh chilli is an option too! Enjoy ~
