Jamie's 15 minute (takes me 25) Chicken Pasta with Herby 6 Veg Ragu

Submitted by: WAHZOE

Introduction

I have adapted this recipe from the Jamie Oliver 15 minute meals book. I have halved the amount of chilli, removed the pine nuts and adjusted the amount of passata to match the pack size we buy.
