Using up leftovers – chicken pasta bake

I like to make use of everything I cook, which is why I had enough chicken and vegetables left from Saturday’s pot-roasted chicken.

I took all the nice meat off of the carcass (the dogs had the scraggy bits) and mixed it with the chopped up leftover vegetables and the remains of the sauce, plus some crème fraiche and rigatoni. I topped this with grated Cheddar and breadcrumbs (another leftover really, I turn stale loaf ends into crumbs and freeze them) and baked it in the oven until the top was golden.

Not really cooking, more of an assembly, but a satisfying mid-week supper anyway.
