Ingredients

Instructions

  • Prepare Chicken Béchamel sauce according to its recipe.
  • Add 500g of the Shredded chicken.
  • Add Tomato and Soy sauce.
  • Add any optional spice such as Paprika, Oregano, Parsley, Basil, Thyme to taste. Mix well until boiling and adjust salt if need.
  • 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.

Notes

Store leftovers in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 4 days.
*Whichever pasta you use, make sure to cook it al dente, then rinse it with cold water, drain it, and only then add it to the sauce. This will preserve the pasta structure and prevent it from getting mushy in a creamy sauce. Or for low carb option, with Spaghetti squash.
You can also use gluten-free brown rice penne or rice noodles (also known as rice vermicelli), gluten-free lentil penne or gluten-free quinoa pasta, or any other type of gluten-free short pasta. Cook gluten-free pasta according to package instructions. Then drain and rinse with cold water to prevent gluten-free pasta from getting mushy and sticking together.
