This fiery pasta dish can be made in a mere ten minutes! You'll whip up a quick, punchy arrabbiata sauce made with chilli flakes and chipotle paste, giving the sauce a great kick, but with zero chilli chopping. Stir it through quick-cook fusilli and spinach and top with plenty of grated cheese. It's hot stuff!

Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps
Wash your fruit and veg
Note: equipment and pan sizes vary. Ensure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)
Now, let's get started!
Boil a kettle
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat
Once hot, add the diced chicken and chilli flakes (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and cook for 2 min
Meanwhile, add the quick cook fusilli to a pot with plenty of boiled water with a large pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat
Cook the fusilli for just 2 min (it will keep cooking in the sauce later!)
Once done, drain the fusilli, reserving a cup of the starchy pasta water
Meanwhile, add the garlic paste to the pan with the chicken and cook for 10 sec
Add the chopped tomatoes with 100ml [200ml] boiled water and crumble in the chicken stock cube[s]
Add the chipotle paste (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and give everything a good mix up until fully combined
Cook for 2 min further
Meanwhile, chop the basil roughly, including the stalks
Add the baby leaf spinach to the pan with the chicken and cook for 1 min, stirring until beginning to wilt
Season with a generous grind of black pepper – this is your chicken & spinach arrabbiata sauce
Add the drained fusilli to the chicken & spinach arrabbiata sauce with a small splash of the starchy pasta water and give everything a good mix up
Cook for 1 min further or until the chicken is cooked through
Note: please ensure you cook your chicken thoroughly (until there’s no pink meat and it’s piping hot!) as cooking equipment varies
Set the chicken & spinach arrabbiata fusilli in the centre of the table, ready to share
Top with the grated Italian hard cheese and chopped basil and let everyone dig in
