Spicy Chicken Pasta

Inspired by one of the meals from the food box I tried out I decided to make a new pasta! This recipe is for 4 persons as I put 3 portions in my freezer so I always have a healthy meal when I don't feel like cooking





Duration: 15 minutes

The ingredients:

  • 300 g spelt pasta
  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • 700 ml passata
  • 3 spring onions
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 250 g mushrooms
  • 2 onions
  • 8 fresh sprigs of thyme
  • 2 tbs balsamico vinegar
  • 1 tbs sweet paprika powder
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Olive oil

What you do:
  1. Cook pasta as directed on the package. 
  2. Chop the onion, slice the mushrooms and cut the chicken into small pieces. Heat a splash of olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat and fry the onion, mushrooms and chicken 6 to 8 minutes. Remove the seeds from the red pepper, cut into small pieces and put in the pan after 2 minutes together with the tablespoon sweet paprika powder. 
  3. Meanwhile, cut the onions into rings. Then put most of the onions along with the passata and balsamic vinegar in the pan, zip the thyme leaves from the sprigs, stir well and let the sauce simmer for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve the sauce on the pasta with the rest of the sping onions sprinkled over it.

Enjoy!
