Cook your pasta as per packet instructions.
Meanwhile, fry diced onion and garlic over a low heat using low calorie cooking spray, until they become soft and translucent.
Chop your chicken and chorizo and fry until the chicken is cooked through and the chorizo has begun to go crispy around the edges. Stir regularly to prevent burning.
In the same frying pan, cook your fresh tomatoes and tinned chopped tomatoes along with the chicken stock, salt, pepper, parsley, tomato puree and paprika until the tomatoes have reduced and your sauce begins to thicken.
Add the chicken and chorizo back into the sauce.
Combine the pasta and sauce and transfer into a deep baking dish.
Top with your grated Red Leicester Cheese and Cheddar evenly.
Bake until the cheese has melted and begun to crisp up on top.
