Penne with Chili, Chicken, and Prawns

Rated as 4.8 out of 5 Stars

"A lovely spicy, EASY, fresh, tomatoey pasta dish with lots of kick! Pasta, chicken, bacon, and shrimp combined with chili come together as my all time favourite pasta dish! I have estimated the ingredients, as I usually just throw it all together."

Simple and delicious - everybody loves it! We left the shrimp out for the folks who don't care for it - good either way.
