Fitness Recipe: Baked Pasta with Chicken and Zucchini

Today’s protein-packed recipe will appeal to all meat and legume lovers. We have complemented the seasoned chicken pieces with lentil and pea pasta, which adds another flavour dimension to the dish. And, of course, we added our favourite zucchini. Everything comes together perfectly thanks to the egg whites, which give the baked pasta the perfect consistency. Use some mozzarella and herbs and it will make it even more impressive.
