This is a deliciously creamy sauce that is really simple to make. The chorizo provides a lot of flavour without having to do much yourself! This recipe made 4 potions, so we had an evening meal and enough for lunch the next day between the two of us. If you don't want to use a few syns on chorizo you could swap for a low fat, flavoursome sausage.

Handful of mushrooms, sliced

Fry off the mushrooms, peppers and onion in a large frying pan on a medium heat. While that's frying bring the pasta to the boil in slightly salted water.
Add the chicken and chorizo to the frying pan and fry until chicken cooked through.
