Chicken Pasta

Pasta is so versatile. No matter how many times you make it there is always a different flavor or ingredient that you can add.

With the addition of spices you add a range of different flavors to any meal. Even though I add spices to my pasta dishes – I’m not a fan of my pasta dishes tasting like curry. The secret is adding sweet chilli sauce to the filling. This takes the curry taste away and brings a beautiful flavor to this dish. 250g pasta of your choice

2-3 chicken fillets, sliced

1/2 green pepper, sliced

1/2 red pepper, sliced
