I expected this to be bland so I increased the garlic and seasoning. I used 2/3 head of fresh brocolli, 2 carrots, 250g stock, 300g spaghettini and 400g organic chicken which I seasoned with salt and pepper before frying. It was surprisingly tasty and makes a change from tomato based pasta sauce. I found that this served 4. - 04 Aug 2015
