Chicken Marinade
  • 1 tsp ground garlic
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp white wine
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
Mascarpone Pasta
  • 250 g tagliatelle pasta
  • 2 chicken breast (250g)
  • 250 g mascarpone cheese (I used mascarpone light from Lidl)
  • 1 medium courgette, grated
  • 4-5 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 vegetable stock cube
  • 2 handful of spinach
  1. Place chicken and marinade ingredients in a bowl. Mix it all up and refrigerate for 30 minutes or so. 

  2. Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a saucepan over a medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté until they turn slightly brown. Then add the chicken and sauté for 3'.

  3. Add the grated zucchini and crumble the vegetable stock cube over the saucepan. Zucchini will provide enough liquid to the sauce. Turn off the heat and pour in the mascarpone cheese and the spinach, mix to combine. If needed add a bit of water to lighten the sauce.

  4. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and toss with sauce over low heat to warm. Garnish with spinach leaves or more herbs and serve.
