  • olive oil 3/4 tbsp
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 200g boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 a courgette
  • 1 mushroom
  • 1/4 green pepper
  • 1/4 red pepper
  • 400g tinned chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp sundried tomato puree
  • 6 basil leaves, finely chopped
  • 250g dried penne pasta
  • parmesan cheese (to taste)


    1. Add the olive oil to a deep frying pan. Fry the onion and garlic at a medium heat. Let them soften but not colour.
    2. Wash the chicken breast and dice into bite sized pieces and add it to the onion and garlic. Let the chicken brown.
    3. Finely chop the courgette, pepper and mushroom and add them to the pan. Let them soften. Add the tinned chopped tomatoes, puree and basil. Let everything simmer on a low heat for 20 minutes.
    4. Meanwhile, in a different pan cook the pasta in boiling water for 12 minutes and drain. (Tip: add a glug of olive oil to the water to stop the pasta from sticking together.)
    5. When the pasta and chicken and vegetable are done, add the pasta to the frying pan and mix thoroughly. Serve in dishes with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese on top.
