Chicken Rigatoni with Rosée Sauce

June 18, 2014 - By Sophie Blais

Temps de lecture 2 minutes

Do you think pasta is prohibited during a weight loss process? Not at all! It’s all about quantity! Simple make sure there are enough proteins and vegetables to make the dish healthy. We usually avoid using cream in sauces, and this is why I used ricotta cheese instead. It’s up to you to try it!

4 servings

10 ml (2 teaspoons) olive oil
125 ml (1/2 cup) onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
400 ml (1) can of low sodium tomato sauce
30 ml (2 tablespoons) tomato paste
10 ml (2 teaspoons) basil
10 ml (2 teaspoons) oregano
200 g (2) chicken breasts, diced
200 g rigatoni pasta
250g (1/2) eggplant, peeled and diced
2 zucchinis, diced
1 sweet red pepper, diced
125 ml (1/2 cup) regular ricotta cheese
60 ml (1/4 cup) of pasta cooking water
Salt and pepper, to taste

  1. In a saucepan, heat 5 ml of olive oil and cook the onions for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, and cook for another minute.
  2. Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Cook over low heat during 20 minutes.
  3. During this time, heat 5 ml of olive oil in a frying pan. Cook the chicken for about 6 minutes, stirring regularly. Set aside.
  4. Cook the pasta according to the indications on the package.
  5. Add the vegetables in the frying pan. Add salt and pepper, and cook for another 8 minutes, stirring regularly. Add the chicken, set aside, and keep warm.
  6. When the sauce is ready, add the ricotta cheese. Mix thoroughly and wait a few minutes for the sauce to heat up. Add the pasta cooking water to the sauce.
  7. To serve, divide the pasta in four servings, add the sauce, and garnish with vegetables and chicken.

Bon appétit!
