This is a rich, cheese stretching, flavour-packed, ultimate comfort dish that everyone will love! Mmmm, I get hungry just thinking of it! Whenever I prepare this pasta dish my kids almost have a celebration!
I use the French classic Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic recipe in preparing this dish. I find that the flavours combine so well. That chicken preparation makes all the difference to the flavour round up… It is a bit more work, but worth the extra effort. If you cook the chicken recipe a day before then you can use its leftovers to prepare the pasta. If you are in a hurry and don’t have enough time to prepare the chicken that way, then any roasted chicken recipe will do. However, the key ingredient here is the roasted garlic, because as it roasts, it sweetens and when crushed and used here it just gives that unbelievable depth. Do try it, you will know exactly what I am talking about.
Finally, might sound crazy, but I like to serve this with an acidic salad to the side. This is just a personal preference but it really works, the lemony acidic salad cuts through the cheese sauces and the crunch against the soft of the pasta is just awesome. This part is totally optional, but if you are a salad and veg freak as I am then you will love this.
