INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 24, 2008 29 Baked perfection CHICKEN AND CHEESE PASTA BAKE Recipe: ANNETTE FORREST. Photography: MARK O'MEARA. Serves: 4 1 large barbecued chicken; 400g dried tortiglioni or rigatoni pasta; 1 tablespoon olive oil; 2 garlic cloves, crushed; 1 small red onion, finely chopped; 500g jar tomato pasta sauce; 2 cups reduced-fat grated mozzarella cheese; 100g baby spinach. Method: Remove skin and meat from chicken. Discard skin and bones. Roughly chop chicken. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan-forced. Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water, following packet direc- tions, until just tender. Drain. Return to pan. Meanwhile, heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until softened. Add garlic mixture, pasta sauce, chicken, 3/4 cup cheese and spinach to pasta. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Spoon pasta mixture into a 7cm-deep, 24cm x 19cm (base) baking dish. Top with remaining cheese. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden and heated through. Serve. For more warming winter recipes, grab the latest issue of Super Food Ideas, Australia's leading food magazine. Ask Kim Icookalotofpasta,andIwas wondering which pasta types go with which sauces? Wide-ribbon and larger-shaped pastas like fettuccine and rigatoni are best with a rich, chunky sauce such as thick tomato and olive or boscaiola (bacon, cream and mushroom), while thinner pastas such as angel hair work well with more delicate sauces such as lemon and olive oil sauce or creamy pesto. Small pasta shapes such as maca- roni or risoni are best with soups or stews. When using pastas such as tortellini or ravioli, the filling's flavour determines the richness of the sauce. For example, a delicate-flavoured ravioli would be overpowered if served with a thick, robust sauce. Dried pasta works well with sauces that are thicker and chunkier.
