Recipe; Chicken tikka pasta bake

I’m spicing things up a little bit, with this Chicken Tikka 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.

    I love this idea! Pasta goes great with so many things. This is a combo I hadn’t thought of, though. Thanks for sharing! My husband I will definitely enjoy this. It’s the kids who will take some convincing, lol.

    Not gonna lie, I could eat this right now! I love a pasta bake but would never think of doing a curried themed one.

    Really great recipe that I will be trying out x

    I’d never thought about mixing tikka masala with pasta but it’s great to have a bit of variety- especially at the moment. It looks lovely! Thanks for sharing.

    • It took me 14 years to get my family to eat Tikka. Make a small portion and let them try it. As you bake it the flavour slightly changes so becomes slightly sweeter and milder.
