Creamy Garlic and Parmesan Bake

I love the combination of garlic and Parmesan, it is a match made in heaven. So, I whipped up this little jem. It’s rich and creamy and the flavours just melt into one another. Perfect after a long day in the office, or in the classroom, in my case. For some extra indulgence, a glass of red wine just sets it off to perfection.




3 chicken breasts

400g can of chopped tomatoes

1 medium onion, sliced

3 cloves garlic, grated

50g grated parmesan

Fresh basil leaves

Salt and pepper

White sauce

1 tblspn flour

1 tblspn butter

250ml low fat milk

400g fresh gnocchi

Fry up the chicken in olive oil.

When it is slightly browned, add in the onion and 2 cloves of garlic.

Throw in the tin of chopped tomotoes and simmer on a low heat.

In a separate saucepan, heat the butter and flour and whisk to make a paste.

Take off the heat and add in the milk a little at a time until a nice creamy consistency is formed.

Add the white sauce into the chicken and tomato mixture, stir to combine, simmer for 5 minutes.

Add the gnocchi into the sauce. Cook for a further 3 minutes.

Tear the basil leaves into the sauce just at the end of cooking.

Butter your baking dish, tip the chicken sauce into the dish.

Sprinkle over some grated parmesan and garlic and pop in the oven for 25 minutes.

Niente di più semplice……. Buon Appetito!!
