Tomato, Chicken and Basil Fusilli

To save time I made the tomato and basil sauce the night before so it literally took 15 minutes to get to the table. A great weekday night supper.....and Lowen REALLY enjoyed it  - this one I'm writing down.

Ingredients:to serve 4
Tomato and Basil Sauce;
2 Garlic Cloves
1 Onion, chopped
100ml White Wine
Splash of Cider Vinegar
2 tins chopped tomatoes
Pinch chilli flakes
1TSP each of sugar, salt and pepper
Large Handful of Basil (from Natoora)
100g Buffalo Mozzarella (from Natoora)

250g Fusilli
Handful of leftover roast chicken
Parmesan, grated
Rocket to garnish (from Natoora)

Method:
Step 1: Make sauce - fry onion and garlic until soft, add wine and vinegar and fry until evaporated. Add tomatoes, chilli flakes, Sugar, Salt and Pepper and simmer for 1 hour. Add torn basil leaves and mozzarella
Step 2: Meanwhile cook pasta according to instructions and drain. Add to sauce
Step 3: Stir through chicken and serve topped with Parmesan and rocket salad
