Chicken Rigatoni with Rosée Sauce

Rigatoni rose

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

Ingredients
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
