A Week On Ready Meals From Marks And Spencer - Day 2 Chicken & Bacon Carbonara

Today I have chosen a Balanced For You meal, Chicken & Bacon Carbonara. Pasta dishes are filling at the best of times and this dish is perfect for a satisfying meal at lunchtime or evening.

Chicken & Bacon Carbonara

Ready to cook

This meal can be cooked in a microwave or an oven. The best results are obtained from microwave cooking. At 750w this takes 3mins 30seconds and 850w 3 mins. If you prefer to cook in the oven, preheat to 190oC, or 170oC fan, or Gas Mark 5. Remove sleeve and pierce film. Place on a baking tray and cook for 20 minutes.  Containing 35% cooked pasta, 19% chicken breast, 2.5% smoked bacon along with parmesan cheese and a creamy sauce, this is well balanced.

Ready to eat!

I found this meal to be very tasty and filling and being part of the 3 for £10 Balanced for You offers, a very reasonably priced one. To buy on its own will cost £4.25, which may seem a bit expensive, but it is a satisfying meal.

Notes From The Lost by Cathie Hartigan

Two young friends go to war, but only one makes it home. Why is he not welcomed? 

In modern-day Exeter, Ros discovers what happened,

but in doing so reveals long-held family secrets.

For better, or for worse?

"a gripping and well-researched WW2 story, full of heart and emotion. Ros didn't just hold her own future in her hands,

she held the destiny of the people that she now knew as friends."

What an incredible story.

I loved the songs, felt like I could hear

the music and adored the ending.

Truly a wonderful read."
