Chicken Tomato Pasta

Chicken Tomato Pasta

Chicken Tomato Pasta is my son’s favourite tea and a clean plate is guaranteed.

The Honey takes away the tangy taste of the Tinned Tomatoes and the Dried Basil fills your kitchen with a fantastic aroma.

The Fusilli Pasta allows the tomato sauce to catch on it and envelope its spirals.
