Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 250g Qukes® baby cucumbers, chopped
  • 200g Sweet Solanato® Tomatoes, halved
  • 175g Minicaps® baby capsicums, sliced
  • 2 cups macaroni pasta
  • 1 slice grain bread
  • 1/4 cup finely grated parmesan
  • 250g spreadable cream cheese
  • 4 tbs Greek yoghurt
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced. Cook the pasta in a saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente. Drain then refresh in cold water. Drain well.
  2. Meanwhile, process the bread into crumbs and scatter on a greased baking tray. Sprinkle over the parmesan and spray lightly with oil. Bake for 6 minutes until light golden. Cool, then break into pieces.
  3. Whisk the cream cheese and yoghurt together until smooth. Stir in the chicken, pasta, Qukes®, Solanato® tomatoes and Minicaps®. Season and mix well. Spoon into cups, boxes or bowls. Top with parmesan crumbs just before serving.



Tip: Spoon the parmesan crumb into separate containers when packing in a lunchbox. This keeps it nice and crisp, add just before serving.

Tip: To boost the flavour for adults lunch, stir 1/2 cup basil pesto into the cream dressing and add a handful of basil leaves.
