Preheat your oven to 200°C and put your kettle on to boil. Trim the courgette, then quarter lengthways. Chop into 1cm chunks. 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, season with salt and pepper and cook until browned all over, 5-6 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. Turn occasionally, then add the courgette and cook for a further 2 mins. Meanwhile, put a large saucepan of water on to boil with 1/2 tsp salt for the pasta.


Pour the boiling water for the sauce (see ingredients for amount), chicken stock paste and finely chopped tomatoes (see ingredients for amount) 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. Cook until the sauce has thickened and the veg is soft, stirring occasionally, 12-15 mins. IMPORTANT: 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 veg and stir through. Transfer to an ovenproof dish and top with the creamy pasta. Cover with the hard Italian style cheese. Bake on the top shelf of your oven until the top is golden and a little crispy at the edges, 10-12 mins.


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