Last week I made Spirelli with chicken and tomato sauce with left overs from my fridge. I wanted to cook something tasty, but also budget friendly. In my hunt for easy recipes, I came across something that seemed quick to make and decided to try it out. Of course I changed the original recipe with what I had at home and the result was very satisfying.

  3. Season the chicken with pepper and salt or chicken spices.

    ** do not rinse the pan, because we need it for afterwards.

  6. Pour the spirelli’s and peas into a colander and poor them together into the big pot.
  7. Lower the fire plate and add the tomato paste and some light cream (to flavor) to the frying pan.
