Syn Free Chicken And Bacon Cheesy Tomato Pasta | Slimming World Recipe

I put together this fantastic pasta tonight mainly from what I had lingering in the kitchen and it was delicious 🙂 It will serve 2 people or feel free to freeze the second portion. As long as you use the Dairylea from your Healthy Extra allowance this is totally syn free.


(Serves 2… or freeze your second portion): 

250g dried Pasta
1 Large Chicken breast
3 Rashers of bacon with all fat removed
1 Red pepper
1 Onion
4 Tbsp of frozen sweetcorn (or tinned)
2 Dairylea light triangles (Use your healthy extra A or 3 syns)
250g Passata
2 Tsp Garlic granules (or 2 cloves garlic)
1/2 Tsp Dried mixed herbs
1 Chicken stock cube
Salt and pepper


  • Bring water to boil in a pan and add the pasta.
  • Chop pepper and onion and add to a frying pan with a little Frylight. Cook until softened.
  • Meanwhile slice your chicken breast into diced pieces and remove all fat from bacon and cut into small strips.
  • Add sweetcorn, chicken and bacon to the frying pan and cook on a medium heat stirring regularly. If you find the mixture to be sticking or too dry add a spoonful of water from the pasta pan.
  • Add garlic, crushed stock cube, herbs, salt and pepper and cook for a further minute or two ensuring the chicken and bacon are cooked.
  • Reduce heat and add the Dairylea triangles and stir until melted and fully covering the mixture. Add half of your passata and stir.
  • Drain the pasta and add to the frying pan. Mix the pasta in ensuring it is fully covered and then decide if you think it needs a little more passata. We like our pasta quite dry but if you would prefer this to be more saucy just add more.
  • Cook for a couple of minutes on a low heat ensuring it is fully warmed through.

Enjoy 🙂

This Lasagna is brilliant for batch cooking.. simply freeze portions for reheating later on.

Make your White sauce:

  • Beat the eggs in a bowl and add the yogurt bit by bit whisking as you go.
  • Add mustard powder and a pinch of salt and whisk further.
  • Spoon the white mixture on top of the lasagna covering every gap.
  • Sprinkle over your grated cheese.

9 Freeze-Ahead Batch Cook Meals | Slimming World Prep

Prepping, batch cooking and freezing meals is just smart behavior for any busy mum or hard working family. Anyone who has followed the Slimming World plan will know how hard it can be to think of good Syn free meals each day.. and usually they take quite a bit of effort to make. So it just makes perfect sense to batch cook and freeze portions to use any time.

I have compiled a list of my delicious recipes which make perfect batch cooking and freezing.

Most of these recipes are fine for reheating in the microwave but please make sure you store them in a microwave suitable container. I would suggest keeping these in the freezer for no longer than one month.

1. Chilli beef strips

Reheat in the microwave from frozen.
Make sure this is piping hot before serving.




2. BBQ Pulled Pork

Reheat in the microwave from frozen. Make sure this is piping hot before serving.
Serve in a roll, or with rice or with chips.



3. Beef in Black bean sauce

Works best fully defrosting before reheating in the microwave to avoid the beef going tough.




4. Cottage pie

Works best fully defrosting before reheating in the microwave to avoid the potato going watery.



5. Chicken Tikka curry

Simply reheat from frozen in the microwave but please ensure the chicken is piping hot before serving.



6.  Chicken and Bacon tomato pasta

This one is perfect for reheating and it even tastes better 🙂 But please ensure the chicken is piping hot before serving.



7. Chilli con carne

Simply reheat from frozen but ensure this is piping hot before serving.




8. Beef Curry

Simply reheat in the microwave from frozen but please ensure this is piping hot before serving.




9. Butternut squash lasgna

This can be made into 6 portions and reheated from frozen.

Syn Free Tagliatelle Carbonara Pasta | Slimming World Recipe

I have made something similar to this before but I used Philadelphia in the past.. this time i decided to use Dairylea and it improved the recipe 100%.

Cooking time: 30 minutes
Serves: 2
Syns: None (6 syns if not using as healthy extra)


250g Tagliatelle pasta (or more if you are mega hungry) (Could also use another pasta like penne etc…)
5 Rashers of bacon (smoked or unsmoked) with all fat removed before cooking
200g Tinned lean ham
1 Ham stock cube (or you could use chicken)
2 Cloves of garlic (or 2 tsp of garlic powder or flakes)
1/2 Tsp of dried mixed herbs
150g Dairylea light soft spread (use for your healthy extra A) (or 6 syns)
3 Large mushrooms (or frozen mushroom)
1 Large leek
1 Red pepper
Salt and pepper to season
Fry light


  • Add water to a pan, once boiling add your 250g of pasta and cook until soft.
  • Meanwhile chop your pepper, leek and mushrooms. Spray a pan with Fry light and add pepper and leek. Cook until soft.
  • Meanwhile remove all fat from your rashers of bacon and cut your ham into cubes.
  • Add your mushrooms, bacon and ham to the pan, cook on a low heat.
  • Add your garlic, mixed herbs, crushed stock cube, salt and pepper. If you find it is sticking add a spoonful of your pasta water to moisten.
  • Turn down to a low heat and add your cheese. Be careful that the cheese does not burn or stick. Keep it moving.
  • When the pasta is cooked do not drain. Use tongs to remove the pasta and add it to the pan of ingredients. Wet starchy pasta allows the sauce to stick together more and adds a little water to your sauce also.
  • Make sure the pasta is covered in all of the cheese and everything is mixed together well and serve.

This recipe is only Syn free is you are using the Cheese as your healthy extra A. If not please add 6 Syns.
This recipe could be served with a speedy salad.. or replace the bacon with extra speed foods such as extra peppers, onions or spinach.
I wouldn’t suggest having this recipe too often as bacon and ham is fairly high in salt and fat content. But it makes an excellent treat.
