Jamie’s chicken pasta

At the beginning of July, my brother came to Trondheim for a visit and I decided to greet him with one of Jamie’s pasta dishes. There isn’t a safer food than pasta when I have guests. It’s simple, clean and fast, yet the addition of vegetables makes this dish very tasty.

Actually, the vegetarian ragu part of the recipe could stand on its own. Filled with vegetables and filled with flavors, it is the best elaborate pasta sauce I’ve ever had and a good way to eat more veggies. Jamie suggests using leek, celery, carrot, zucchini and red pepper, but I guess you can use whatever you have on hand. I plant to try adding eggplant in the vegetable mix next time I make it.

I must be the only person on earth that didn’t eat bacon until I was well into adulthood. My mother never brought bacon home and the first time I tried it, I actually hated it. I forced myself buying bacon for this recipe and I’m still not bacon’s biggest fan. I guess I’ll always be able to live without it. That being said, chicken and bacon are a great combination.

If you put this all together on a plate, then you have a very filling meal that can satisfy the most hungry guests, especially the ones that travelled all the way from Athens to Trondheim.

All in all, this is a great safe dish that didn’t kick me much out of my comfort zone save for the bacon. Will I make it again? Absolutely.
