Creamy Tomato Chicken Pasta


This creamy tomato pasta comes together quite easily and comes with a bit of heat.

In our recipe we’ve used Nuh’un Ankara Vitamin Farfalle Pasta, which we got from one of our partners STO (State Trading Organisation).

The pastas in the Nuh’un Ankara Vitamin series are produced from the semolina of durum wheat and includes added nutrients such as Niasin, Iron, thiamine, riboflavin, Folic Acid. These pastas also have a low glycemic index value. Apart from this, the pasta doesn’t get sticky while cooking and has a nice thickness and bite when cooked making it ideal for rich sauces like the one in this recipe.


Serves: 2-3



  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups Nuh’un Ankara Vitamin Farfalle Pasta
  • 3 tsp. salt (divided)
  • 1 cup chopped boneless chicken breast
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper (divided)
  • 1 tsp. red chilli powder (divided)
  • 1 ¾ dried oregano (divided)
  • 1 medium onion (1/2 cup when diced)
  • 3 garlic cloves (1 ½ tbsp. when minced)
  • 2/3 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 9 tbsp. tomato paste (3 small cans)
  • ½ tsp. chilli flakes
  • ½ cup cooking cream
  • 1 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese

  1. Add water to a pot and bring it to a boil. When it starts to boil, add Ankara Vitamin Farfalle Pasta and 2 tsp. salt and boil for 7 minutes or until the pasta is cooked.

  5. Heat the olive oil in a pot and add the chicken. Cook while continuously stirring on high heat for 6 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. Then remove the chicken to a plate.
  6. Add the onion and garlic to the same pot and fry for 2 minutes or until the onion looks golden. Then add the bell pepper and cook for another 2 minutes or until the bell pepper softens.
