  • Parsley for garnish
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200c
  • Fry the bacon until the fat has rendered and the bacon is crispy then remove with a slotted spoon
  • Brown the chicken on all sides until almost cooked through then remove
  • Boil pasta until al dente - usually a minute or two less than the packet instructions. Drain and set aside
  • Gently cook the onions & peppers until soft then add garlic & cook for another minute
  • Add tomato puree and cook for another minute
  • Add in the paprika, oregano & thyme, followed by the chopped tomatoes & cream (if using) & stir thoroughly

  • Season with salt & pEpper to taste
  • Add the chicken, bacon & pasta to the sauce and cook for a couple of minutes

  • Transfer to a large baking dish and sprinkle over the grated cheese
  • Cook in the oven for 20 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown
