  • Pasta


  1. Wash hands before starting.
  2. Slice the peperami, spring onions, and chilli.
  3. On a medium heat cook your chicken. Once cooked through add the chorizo and peperami. Allow to soften and then add spring onions and chill. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  4. Add your tubs of single cream and then the tomato pesto, making sure to stir well. Reduce to a low heat and allow to simmer for 30-45 minutes (the longer the better).

  6. Add as much pasta is needed for each person eating.
  7. Once the pasta is cooked, drain the water and return the pasta to the pot.
