Creamy Summer Roast Chicken & Asparagus Lemon Tagliatelle

  
A Beautiful & extremely easy Summer Pasta Lovely Soft Roast Chicken with a Delicate Zesty Lemon Creamy Sauce, Fresh Asparagus & Petit Pois. Seriously quick to make due to the ready roasted chicken. Serves one but quantities can be easily multiplied if feeding more. This is 10 propoints or can be made for free on the filling and healthy plan 👌💕  
75g Ready Cooked Roast Shredded Chicken Pieces (you can use up to 90g for the same 2 propoints this is what was left in the packet I used so add a bit more if you like or alternatively you can cook & point your chicken if following F&H)

220g (Cooked Weight) Tagliatelle (use wholewheat if following the F&H plan)

1 Large Heaped Tbsp of Quark Cheese

6/7 Fresh Asparagus Spears 

A Squeeze of Fresh Lemon Juice (about a Tbsp) & about 1/2 the Lemon Zest Grated Finely

A Handful of Fresh Basil Leaves 

1 Tbsp Frozen Petits Pois Peas
Salt & Black Pepper 
A Tiny Bit of Dijon Mustard (*Optional)

  

Prepare the Tagliatelle according to packet instructions in a large pot of already boiling salted water. When there is about 6/7 minutes left on the Pasta cooking time add the Asparagus Spears in to the same pot (Trim the hard stems off the bottoms of the spears first). Meanwhile heat another Saucepan over a medium heat, spray with oil & add the Cooked Chicken & Peas for about 4 minutes (add the Chicken for much longer about 12 minutes or until fully cooked through if you’re not using precooked Chicken). Add in the heaped tablespoon of Quark to the Chicken & Peas & a few Tbsps of the starchy cooking water from the pasta pot to thin out the quark & melt it into a creamy sauce. Add the squeeze of Lemon Juice & season with salt & black pepper (you can add the tiny bit of Dijon Mustard at this stage if using). Stir well thinning out the sauce with more pasta cooking water if needed. Drain the Pasta & Asparagus & add to the sauce. Add in the Basil Leaves & Lemon Zest & Stir well coating all the Pasta with the sauce. Serve immediately & Enjoy!
