Nutritional Breakdown

Chicken, Courgette and Lemon Pasta Bake – 596kcals and 18.1g of fat per serving


  • 4 large portabella mushrooms
  • 350g dried linguine
  • 300g courgette, grated
  • 300ml low fat crème fraiche
  • 200ml low fat Greek yoghurt
  • 1 large free-range egg yolk
  • 35g Parmesan cheese
  • zest of 1 unwaxed lemon
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 200g cold roast chicken, shredded
  • A small bunch of fresh chives, snipped


Heat the oven to 200C. Heat a pan and spritz in a few spritzes of olive oil. Fry the mushrooms then remove from the pan and set aside. Fry the grated courgette for a couple of minutes. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet, but cook it for a minute or two less so it’s a little underdone.

Meanwhile mix together the crème fraiche, yoghurt, egg yolk, Parmesan, lemon zest, salt and pepper.

Drain the cooked pasta, leaving a few tablespoons of water in the bottom of the pan. Return the pan to a low heat and pour in the sauce.

Toss the pasta in the sauce, then add the roast chicken and chives, giving it all a good mix round until it’s evenly incorporated.
