Now add the Chicken Stock, stir again and allow to simmer on a low heat stiring often until thickened and everything is cooked.
- If the sauce starts to dry or stick before everyting is cooked, take a spoonful of the pasta water and stir in.

Made this last night. Gorgeous, went down well with the whole family
How long do you simmer it for?
There is no time frame.. it mentions “until thickened and everything is cooked” 🙂
I cooked this last night for my husband. It was very tasty and we both enjoyed it.
Hi I,m going to try this tomorrow would I be able to use quark instead of laughing cow cheese please
I wouldn’t recommend it 🙁
I made this but doubled all ingredients as have a big family to feed (5 of us eating, 3 adults and 2 children) it was very runny and took a very long time to thicken so I’d recommend if you do need more and do as I did maybe don’t add double the amount of stock. My kids were getting quite impatient ?. 4 out of 5 of us enjoyed it but my ASD son is a very picky eater.
