Spicy Chicken Pasta recipe

This spicy chicken and veg pasta dish is an awesome 15 minute meal that’s easy to cook.

We used red pepper and courgette for our dish although you can use pretty much any veg you wish or have leftover.

As for the spiciness, if you’re not too keen on it being too hot just stick with the natural spices from the chorizo, but if you want to heat things up, stir in some peri peri or hot sauce to taste.
