Baked pasta never tasted so good: First boil the shells until shy of being al dente (meaning a few minutes less than the package instructions, since the pasta will continue to cook in the oven), then combine with a hearty filling that includes chicken and carrots that are cooked together until tender and pureed pumpkin (as the sauce). Sprinkle with grated cheese and bake until golden brown and bubbling and delicious.

Ingredients

  • 175 grams conchiglie (large, about 30 pasta shells)
  • 350 grams chicken breast
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • oil
  • salt
  • seasoning (pepper, blend, 5 peppers and coriander)
  • grated cheese
  • 250 grams pumpkin
  • 1 cup water
  • salt
  • vanilla-infused extra virgin olive oil (to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

Directions

  1. Cook pasta shells in plenty of boiling, salted water until al dente, according to package instructions.
  2. Drain well and set aside.
  3. Heat about 3 tablespoons olive oil in a pan and sauté onion and chopped garlic.
  4. Add cubed chicken and grated carrot to pan.
  5. About halfway through cooking, deglaze pan with wine, season with salt and pepper seasoning blend and cook until all the alcohol evaporates.
  6. Heat about 1 cup of water in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  7. Cook peeled and diced pumpkin in boiling water until knife-tender.
  8. Puree pumpkin with immersion blender until smooth and creamy.
  9. Season pumpkin puree with salt, dried basil and a light drizzle of olive oil.
  10. Mix well.
  11. Stuff cooked shells with chicken filling and place in a greased baking dish.
  12. Pour pumpkin sauce over shells.
  13. Sprinkle with grated cheese and lightly drizzle with vanilla olive oil.
  14. Bake in preheated oven for about 15 minutes at 180°C (approximately 350°F) or until cheese is hot and bubbly.
