Today’s winner of the instagram competition is Daneyl Green (@thestrandsofme) for her healthy chicken and veggie gluten-free pasta dish. One of the best things about this healthy recipe, apart from its quality low fat protein content in the chicken, is that it manages to hide tonnes of tasty and nutritious veggies in the sauce itself. That makes this a great dish to share with younger kids who are maybe not so inclined to eat their vegetables! A great recipe to use on one of the Lose Baby Weight plans, it also uses gluten-free pasta, which is a great way to ensure the meal is kind on your digestive tract, as lots of people experience discomfort after eating gluten (although the recipe is just as delicious with standard pasta).

To create your own pasta dish like Deneyl’s, you first need to make a vegetable ragu. Similar to a traditional bolognese, but instead of using meat, you’re going to blitz up all of your favourite fresh vegetables, and that will form the base of the sauce. Some good options are carrots, celery, capsicum, zucchini and leeks, but you can use whatever you have available. Just blitz them altogether in the food processor, and fry off gently in a little oil with either a jar of passata or a tin of crushed tomatoes. While that’s cooking, cook off some finely sliced bacon, followed by chopped free-range chicken breast. Cook your pasta, and mix the tomato, chicken and bacon. Drain pasta, and then combine all the ingredients and serve with a little parmesan and fresh basil. Divine!
