Preheat your oven to 200°C and put your kettle on to boil. Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips. Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).


Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat. When hot, add the chicken and pepper, then season with salt and pepper. Cook until the chicken is browned all over, 5-6 mins. Turn occasionally. Meanwhile, put a large saucepan of water on to boil with 1/2 tsp salt for the pasta.


Pour in the boiling water for the sauce (see ingredients for amount) and add the chicken stock paste and passata into the pan with the chicken. Stir in the dried oregano, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to medium until the sauce is simmering away. Cook until the sauce has thickened and the veggies are soft, stirring occasionally, about 12-15 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands after handling raw chicken and its packaging. The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.


Meanwhile, add the pasta to the pan of boiling water and bring back to the boil. Cook until tender, 12 mins. When the pasta is cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pan. Mix in the creme fraiche and season with salt and pepper.


Add half the parsley to the chicken and veggies and stir through. Transfer to an ovenproof dish and top with the creamy pasta. Cover with the hard Italian style cheese and pop on the top shelf of your oven. Bake until the top is golden and a little crunchy at the edges, 10-12 mins.


Serve the chicken pasta bake in bowls and finish with a sprinkling of the remaining parsley. Enjoy!
