Oct 3, 2022
10 mins to prepare and 40 mins to cook
300g dried rigatoni or penne
100g chorizo, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
3 chicken breasts, cut into chunks
400g in Tesco Finest cherry tomatoes
400g tin chopped tomatoes
2 tsp dried oregano
30g fresh basil, torn
75g light soft cheese
3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
150g mozzarella cheese, finely chopped
Heat oven to gas 8, 220°C, fan 200°C. Bring a large pan of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta following the instructions. Drain and set to one side.
Heat a large dry ovenproof frying pan on high heat and cook the chorizo for 3-4 mins, until the oils are released and start to crisp. Add the garlic and chicken and fry for 5 mins to brown. Tip in both cans of tomatoes and bring to a simmer, then add ¾ of the oregano, ½ the basil, the soft cheese, and some seasoning. Stir until the cheese has melted into the sauce.
Add the pasta and mix well. Scatter on the Parmesan and mozzarella and the rest of the oregano. Bake for 20-25 mins, until golden brown and bubbling. Serve with the rest of the torn basil on top.
