How to Save Time?
Bow Tie Pasta
1 Tin Chopped Tomatoes
1 White Onion Minced
2 Cloves Garlic Minced
1 Red Bell Pepper
2 Cups Spinach
1/8 Cup Cheese
1tb Mixed Italian Herbs
Peel your onion and garlic and give them a rough chop up.
Peel your carrot and chop it up into small pieces.
Chop your pepper into 1-inch pieces and your chicken into bite size pieces.
Get a pot on medium high heat and add in enough oil to cover the base of the pot.
Once hot add in your garlic and onions and fry till fragrant.
Add in your chicken and fry till almost cooked, followed by your carrots and red bell peppers.
Give it a good mix together then add in 1 tin of chopped tomatoes, 1tb of mixed herbs and salt and pepper to taste.
Add in 2 portions of bow tie pasta or pasta of choice and enough water to just cover the pasta.
Let it bubble away for 4 minutes. Add in 2 cups of spinach and continue to bubble away till the pasta is cooked through.
Add in 1/8 cups of cheese of choice and give it a good stir. It should have yielded a lovely thick sauce but if its not to your liking let it bubble away a bit more or add in more water if its too dry.
Add in some fresh basil for that lovely burst of freshness.
