PREP TIME:10 MIN

COOK TIME:20 MIN

YIELD:3 SERVINGS

INGREDIENTS

  • 200 grams spaghetti
  • 300 grams chicken
  • 3 ripe tomatoes
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • Salt&pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

Cook your pasta according to package instructions until ‘al dente’,this is by taking it off the boiling water 2 minutes to its cook time.Also reserve about half a cup of the pasta water for later.

Slice your chicken into bite size cubes or strips,season well with salt and pepper.I added some of my Home Made Italian Seasoning for extra flavour

Wash your spinach and chop up your tomatoes.proceed to roughly chop your Basil and mince your garlic

Heat a pan over medium high heat with two tablespoons olive oil.Fry your chicken until cooked and golden brown in colour.I used chicken tenders but you can use breasts or thighs

Mix in the tomatoes,garlic and Basil.Add in chilli flakes at this stage for an extra kick if you like it spicy

Cook until the tomatoes have released some of their juices and then add in your pasta 

If you like your pasta saucy like I do mine,add in the reserved pasta water until you achieve sauce consistency of your liking.

Add in the spinach and cook until they start wilting

Drizzle a bit of olive oil in the dish,tear in a couple of fresh basil and serve hot
