This is a basic cheese sauce and is thick

You can use different pasta, just adjust cooking time if required.

    If I used zucchini noodles instead and cooked these in varoma, how much water so you think I will need?

    This was lovely.  Steamed the asparagus, chopped into small pieces and mixed it into the pasta & chicken mixture.  Even my fussy 8 year old asked for seconds. Thanks for the recipe!

    So glad you enjoyed it! My kids love it to and I don't have to feel so guilty about such a creamy sauce tmrc_emoticons.;) 

    If you find it too thick' just reduce or even leave out the cream cheese. Frozen veg (peas, corn, broccoli, cauli) can be thrown in with the pasta for extra veggies for the kids, just add a little extra water if necessary.
