Ingredients:
1/2 medium Onion
1 Clove Garlic
Fresh Chives, Parsley and Basil (to taste – I’d use about 1/8 – 1/4 cup total, mostly chives)
2-3 large Mushrooms (depending on size)
4 Rashers Bacon
1 Chicken Breast or 2 Chicken thighs
Plain Flour
Milk or Evaporated milk (about 1-2 cups)
Salt and pepper to taste
Cheese (optional – I’d use 2 low fat cheese slices)

Method:
1). Put the Pasta on to boil.
2). Chop the Bacon and Chicken into bite sized pieces. Finely chop the onion and garlic.
3). Fry the Bacon and Chicken until about half cooked. Add the Onion and fry until Chicken and Onion are browned. Add the Garlic, Mushrooms and herbs. Fry these until starting to brown.
4). In another pan add milk to about 2 tablespoons of flour, and blend to remove lumps. Bring this to the boil, stirring frequently to make a white sauce.
5). When thickened, add cheese and fried ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste.
6). Either serve this poured over pasta, or mix the pasta through then serve.

Variation
Instead of milk and cheese, you can use a tin of evaporated milk (The “Light & Creamy”) one. Which gives a creamy taste
