About this recipe:This is a foolproof chicken pasta recipe where you can't really go wrong. You can skip the veg, or add your favourites instead of what's written here. Broccoli would also work well, for example. As for the cheese - use your favourite. Anything from feta to Cheddar will work a treat.

In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add chicken, bacon, leek, mushrooms, herbs and garlic. Season with salt and black pepper. If you like spinach, chuck some fresh chopped leaves in at the end until wilted.
Meanwhile, cook pasta according to packet instructions.
If you like asparagus, chuck some in along with the pasta just before the pasta is finished.
When pasta is cooked, drain and chuck in your chicken-bacon mix. Add cream cheese. Check seasoning and add salt and freshly ground black pepper if needed and add a few chopped chives if you like.
I also chuck in some diced cheese, any type you like. Stir around over a low heat until everything’s warmed through again and eat with some garlic bread.
