A midweek meal saviour with Dolmio*

Dolmio was always a staple in our house when I was growing up; lasagnes, bolognese, pasta bake – you name it, we had it and now I know why. It’s so blooming easy and is jam packed full of goodness. A jar of Dolmio contains no artificial colours, preservatives, flavours or sweeteners. It’s 100% natural.

We were challenged by Britmums and Dolmio to come up with a midweek meal that would please the whole family using a bundle of ingredients including a jar of Dolmio. Matt and I usually eat later than the kids in the week but that wasn’t a problem as I made enough for the kids to enjoy the next day too.

I decided to mix things up a bit and be a little bit adventurous with the ingredients. I chopped up all the veg  and spread it out across a baking tray. I drizzled with olive oil, cracked some garlic cloves open and added a light sprinkling of salt and black pepper. Roasting veg has be just about one of the easiest but also one of the tastiest ways to eat veg. You could opt to blend the veg up as a base for a sauce but we wanted them left chunky as a side for our chicken.

We roasted the chicken breasts, which were huge, and then coated them in Dolmio sauce just before taking them out of the oven. We sprinkled on three types of cheese; cheddar, mozzarella and parmesan and waited until it had melted and started to bubble.

Wes served the chicken and veg with wholewheat organic spaghetti and it was devine. Besides hacking up a courgette and aubergine (which was absolutely delicious by the way) there really was minimal prep. It was one of those ‘bung it in the oven’ dinners and hey presto – it’s done!
