Unfortunately, my family wasn't crazy about this dish. We used gouda as the cheese topper. Overall, this dish was just kind-of bland. We might make it again, but add some spices to give it more flavor. And we would probably add more chicken, as we could hardly taste it.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 300 g penne pasta
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 300 ml light thickened cream
  • 310 g corn kernels, drained
  • 23 cup frozen peas
  • 12 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 12 cup barbecue cooked chicken, meat removed and roughly chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup tasty low-fat cheese


  1. Cook the penne in a large saucepan of salted boiling water according to packet instructions or until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a little oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes or until softened (do not allow to brown). Add the cream, bring to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes. Stir through the corn, peas, parmesan and chicken. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, then add the penne. Season with salt and pepper. Stir until well combined.
  3. Preheat an oven grill on medium heat. Transfer the chicken mixture into a 4-cup capacity baking dish. Scatter with the cheese and place under preheated grill. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden on top. To serve, sprinkle with chopped flat-leaf parsley, if desired.
