"Not a recipe for people on a diet - chicken, sausage, and penne is baked in a creamy tomato sauce. I cook the meats, pasta, and sauce all at the same time, but it can be done individually and refrigerated before baking it in the oven." — Simon Wraight

3 1/2 cups

red bell pepper, chopped
chorizo sausage, cut into chunks
1 1/2 cups
red pepper flakes
shredded Cheddar cheese
shredded mozzarella cheese
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
A tasty recipe that makes great leftovers. I used milk instead of the heavy cream to lighten it up a bit. Nice flavor and easy to make.
I had left over chicken and chorizo in the freezer and was trying to find something quick to make with it; this recipe fit the bill. The only thing I did differently was to cook the tomato sauce and cream in the same pot with the chicken and chorizo, in an effort to have one less pot to clean. I also used less cheese than the recipe called for. It worked out great. This was a unique tasting dish.
This was a good pasta dish. I would cook the chicken a little less than instructed because we thought the chicken was dry.
FYI: Chorizo has an interesting taste if you have never eaten it. I cooked mine up the night before making this recipe. I actually made it, and then wasn't sure what to do with it. Yay for All Recipes!
This was great! I changed it up just a little bit: I used milk instead of the cream, red AND green pepper, shrimp instead of chicken, and one 6oz can of tomato paste mixed with 1/2 cup water, then added just a little spaghetti sauce with the milk and the red pepper flakes. YUM! We will definitely have this again. I loved it with shrimp and will throw in more next time. Husband liked it too.
It was a tasty meal, I might make it again, but would probably tweak it more. Definitely was not a spicy dish (and I added a lot more red pepper flakes). I also seasoned it was Spanish Paprika and Cilantro. I used shrimp instead of chicken. I added an entire onion, an additional green bell pepper, used heavy cream because that's what I had on hand, and mixed in cheese before layering the top with the cheese.
I used vegetarian chorizo and milk instead of light cream. Fantastic!
My husband and kids really enjoyed this hearty dish. Great for using up left over chicken/chorizo.
I thought this was pretty good. I think next time I will use less chicken and more chorizo. It wasn't really spicy and I felt the chicken was pretty bland. All in all not a bad dish.
