Instructions

Get Started
1

a) Boil a full kettle.

b) Meanwhile, halve the bell pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips.

Boil the Pasta
2

a) Pour the boiled water into a large saucepan with 1/2 tsp salt on high heat.

b) Add the penne and bring back to the boil. Cook until tender, 12 mins.

c) Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pan. Drizzle with oil and stir through to stop it sticking together.

Fry Time
3

a) Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.

b) Once hot, add the diced chicken and sliced pepper. Season with salt and pepper.

c) Fry until the chicken is cooked through and the pepper has softened, 8-10 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. It's cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Build the Flavour
4

a) While everything cooks, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

b) When the chicken and pepper have 1 min of cooking time left, add the garlic to the pan and fry until fragrant.

Make the Sauce
5

a) Add the passata, red wine stock paste, chipotle paste (add less if you'd prefer things milder), sugar and water for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts) to the pan. 

b) Stir and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until slightly thickened, 2-3 mins.

c) Stir through the cooked pasta and butter (see pantry for amount) and half the cheese. Heat until the pasta is piping hot and the butter has melted, 1-2 mins.

Serve
6

a) Share the smoky chicken pasta between your serving bowls.

b) Sprinkle over the remaining cheese.

Enjoy!
