It’s a luscious sauce for any Pasta or Spaghetti Squash. Also, give it a try with potatoes or just au gratin topped with potato sticks.
I was looking for an easy and delicious recipe to use this Pre-cooked Chicken and Chicken Stock Fast2eat that I’ve previously made.
The result consisted of a silky and creamy dish: Chicken Béchamel sauce, Shredded chicken, spices and herbs tossed with a Spaghetti Squash (or with any pasta or potato, as a filling for this Brazilian Blender Savoury Pie Fast2eat or just itself au gratin), and topped with melted mozzarella. Baked until nice and brown.
This creamy chicken is really satisfying and surprisingly low in calories. Lots of flavors, which work together very well in a delicious and simple dish! The result was nothing short of marvellous. We loved it!!!

- Put the sauce on top of the Spaghetti Squash (or pasta* or or potato, as a filling for this Brazilian Blender Savoury Pie Fast2eat or just itself au gratin) in a large casserole dish or 2 small ones.
- Top mozzarella (and/or parmesan) cheese and bake in preheated oven at 200C (400F) for about 10 minutes until cheese is golden brown.
It is simple, super easy, Fast and delicious to make, the basis for this pie is a batter that is very similar to a cake mix, but savory.
No matter what filling you choose, I do think cheese is pretty much mandatory.
Be creative! Use leftovers, use different vegetables, cheese, meat, any combination and enjoy it!
Some suggestions are: Canned or fresh tuna, salmon or sardines, ham (smoked or regular), grilled shrimp, crab meat, bacon, sausage, pepperoni, ground meat or diced chicken, any cheese (just make sure to pair with a mild meltable cheese like mozzarella for the best texture) such as Monterey, Jack, mozzarella, cheddar, fontina or gruyère, feta, goat cheese, blue cheese and or Brie, broccoli, sauté spinach, Marinated artichoke hearts, escarole, leeks, kale, onions, caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, diced or cherry tomatoes, shredded carrots, butternut squash, asparagus, or any vegetables (roasted and/or raw), dried cranberries, raisins, pecans, walnuts, peanuts, Dijon mustard, garlic, nutmeg, herbs (parsley, scallions , green onions, basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, among others).
If you are vegetarian you can easily use any favourite vegetable and leave it out of any meat.
The only thing that needs to be measured accurately for this recipe is the batter; the rest is completely up to you. No need to measure anything, just cover the extension of the baking dish with a hearty amount of filling.
