I’m spicing things up a little bit, with this Chicken Tikka Masala Pasta Bake. A quick, simple, and delicious intercontinental mix recipe.
Well, I’ve managed to get my family to like Chicken Tikka Masala. It only took nearly 14 years. I’m not complaining, it gives me the chance to cook more adventurous food.
I thought I’d try something different, so I added pasta into the mix, literally. The results were quite nice actually. A baked Chicken Tikka Masala with pasta. As I keep saying in a lot of my recipes, pasta is fantastic, it absorbs so much flavour.
