Method

  1. Cook the pasta in fast boiling water. About 13 minutes for Penne rigate, see pasta cooking times for other types
  2. Add the crushed garlic to the crème fraiche and mix well. If you have the time to spare it benefits from resting a while with the odd stir.
  3. Add the pasta and a little olive to a serving bowl and mix well to lightly coat the pasta in oil
  4. Mix in the peppers, orange, separated onion rings and the chicken and mix very well.
  5. Add the eggs and tomatoes, season, give it one final light mix and serve.

Variations

Use any type of pasta and any cooked meat. Tuna would be good in this.
