Howard's chicken pasta

This dish was developed while we were travelling as something we could make with just a hotplate. It can be served hot, warm or cold, travels well and is perfect when you need to take food for socialising.

500g pasta spirals
100g green beans
3 shallots (spring onions), clove of garlic to taste
1 tbsp canola oil
3 tbsp Philadelphia cream cheese
3 tbsp low-fat yoghurt or soy yoghurt
2 cups cooked diced chicken
salt and citric acid to taste

Cook pasta according to directions. You can add frozen beans (rinsed in tap water) to the cooking pasta. While pasta is cooking, stirfry shallots and garlic gently in a little canola oil. Drain. While warm, stir through cream cheese, yoghurt, shallots and chicken. You can add chopped celery and carrot when permitted (moderate in salicylates) for colour - Howard.
