Chicken Penne with Bacon and Prawns


8 people made this

My all time favourite pasta dish combines penne with three meats and a little chilli. Make it more spicy by using a chilli pasta sauce.


Serves: 4 

  • 250g uncooked penne pasta
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cubed
  • 5 slices bacon
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 750g bottle tomato pasta sauce (use chilli if you like)
  • 250g medium sized prawns - peeled and deveined
  • 1 fresh red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 cup (125g) grated Parmesan cheese

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place the penne pasta in the pot, cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
  2. Meanwhile, place the chicken, bacon and garlic in a large frypan over medium heat, and cook 10 minutes, until bacon is evenly brown and chicken juices run clear. Drain the fat from the pan.
  3. Mix pasta sauce into the frypan. Continue cooking until sauce is heated through. Mix in the prawns. Cook 2 minutes, or until they are opaque.
  4. Stir in the chilli. Toss with the cooked pasta and 1/2 the Parmesan cheese just before serving. Garnish with remaining Parmesan.
