    I do a sour cream and pesto chicken pasta that DH and the kids love!
    I oten do it when we have bought a cooked chook for lunch and want to use up the left over bits
    So it is some cooked pasta
    a handful of cook chicken
    a couple of TBS of pesto - I usually use the sun dried tomato one or the basil (or however much you like/need depends on amount you need to make)
    a bit of grated cheese
    I then throw it all in a bowl (if the chicken and pasta is hot I often don't need to heat to melt the cheese but if either is cool then pop it in the microwave to melt the cheese) and mix in some light sour cream
    If I am feeling fncy Ill toast some pine nuts for the basil pesto oor chuck on a handful of cashews for the sunedried tomato pesto.
    I often add a bit of frozen veges too or zuccini puree too to boost the kids vege intake!

    Another one we have done a couple of times was a boccincni (sp) tomato and pepperoni pasta
    It was another super easy one

    Cook pasta finely chop or slice some pepperoni and pop in a fry pan for a few mins add a punnet(ish)of cherry tomatoes until the tomatoes have softend a bit. Tear the baby spinnach leaves.
    Drain the pasta mix in the pepperoni tomato mix and spinach and the bocconcini - the heat of the pasta melts the cheese! and serve! yum!

    I make a corn pasta bake.

    Basically melt a tub/block of cream cheese with a tin of creamed corn and pour over cooked pasta cover with cheese and bake until the cheese is brown & yummy. I also make it as a complete meal by adding cooked chicken pieces, bacon & a couple of handfuls of frozen vegies.

    Absolute favourite if I have time, home made raviolis stuffed with home made ricotta, fresh herbs and hint of lemon. Served with home made tomato passatta cooked with grated onion and reduced down. Lots of fresh basil and reggionio.

    That's a proper cabornara! Parmasen added also. No cream in real cab.
