A tasty easy meal that packs a lot more punch than you may think.
- 2 chicken breasts, cut into strips
- 1tbsp chopped basil
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 150g penne pasta
- 1/2tsp paprika
- 1/2tsp chilli flakes
- Half a small jar of sundried tomatoes, chopped

In a saucepan fry the garlic and sun-dried tomatoes in a tablespoon of oil. After a minute, remove from the heat and keep to one side. Add the chicken with the paprika and some salt. Cook until sealed.
Meanwhile cook the pasta to the instructions. Reserve some of the pasta water. Drain the pasta.
Add the tomatoes to the chicken and the mozzarella. Stir until the cheese melts. Add the pasta and stir to combine.

Season and add more chilli flakes if you want. Serve.
