Simple scrummy Zizi's pasta !

This is the yummiest yet still one of the easiest pasta dishes I have ever made. It is my version of Zizi's Pollo Picante...

Dried pasta (or spinach and ricotta tortellini for extra yumminess!)
Sacla Fiery Chilli Pesto
Double cream
Roast chicken (to make easier use ready to eat roast chicken)
Cherry tomatoes

1. Boil the pasta
2. Tear up the chicken and fry with the tomatoes in a small amount of olive oil until the chicken is golden and slightly crispy
3. Add the pesto and cream
4. When the pasta is cooked, drain and add to the sauce with the spinach and stir
5. Season to taste and enjoy (you could even add some parmesan if you fancied it!)

I never measure anything out so go by what you feel is right / tastes right (just go easy on the Fiery Chilli Pesto!) I've also tried this recipe with smoked bacon rather than chicken as that's all I had in the fridge - tastes amaaaazing!

Enjoy :)
