In this recipe cooked pasta with a cheese and mustard sauce is pressed into a pie dish and baked to form a crust. The filling of chicken, leek, carrot and zucchini is added and then topped with more of the pasta mix. A quite different sort of chicken and vegetable pie.
Mum chopped this recipe off the back of a packet of Sunrice. The packet has a use by date of 15 Apr 2005 so it’s a fairly recent recipe as far as her collection goes. The tomato pasta sauce also gives it’s age away.
You can tell this an 80s recipe by the lovely wooden bowl and spoon in the picture. Not convinced that the spoon would be much good for getting the casserole out of the bowl though. Think a more modern metal one would do a far better job.

I’m usually very lazy and buy marinated chicken wings from the supermarket, but having found this recipe I’m now wondering why. I especially like the tip about not leaving the wings too long in the marinade because the bought ones obviously have been and are very dark.
Did you think using chickpeas in a recipe was a new thing? This Moroccan style casserole from a 1990s, Australian Women’s Weekly supplement Clever Casseroles disproves this. This recipe is more than 20 years old and a. is Moroccan style and b. uses chickpeas – everything old is new again…….and it even includes a couscous recipe.
