Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet.
Spray a sauce pan with low calorie cooking spray and on a low heat, cook the crushed garlic for 2 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent it sticking.
Add the lightest cream cheese into the pan, along with the chicken, herbs and peas. Add 150ml of boiling water from the pan which the pasta is being cooked in and stir until combined.
Keep the sauce on a low heat, stirring frequently until the chicken is heated through and the frozen peas are cooked. Season to taste, using plenty of black pepper.
Drain the pasta and stir into the sauce. Serve immediately whilst hot – top with a little Parmesan if you like it, but remember to check the nutritional values accordingly!
