    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add rigatoni pasta, cook for 8 minutes, until almost al dente, and drain.
    2. Heat 1/2 the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Place chicken in the frying pan, and cook 10 minutes, or until juices run clear. Remove from heat, and set aside.
    3. Heat the remaining olive oil in the frying pan, and cook the onion and green pepper until tender. Mix in the garlic, ginger and mango, and continue to cook and stir 5 minutes, or until mango is soft. Gradually mix the double cream into the frying pan, and cook 5 minutes, until thickened.
    4. Return the chicken to the frying pan. Stir in the partially cooked pasta, and season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir 2 minutes, until ingredients are well blended and pasta is al dente. Mix in the cheese. Garnish with parsley to serve.

    Made this and substituted the cream for crème fraiche. Lovely 😊  -  12 Jul 2015


    Made this tonight for my fussy family, we all loved it very tasty only thing I would change is the cream, double was way to creamy for us, so I think next time I will try single cream Thanks for sharing your yummy recipe  -  17 Aug 2013


    We really liked this dish! I only felt that the 8 oz of pasta was a little too much; I think next time I will use close to 6 oz to maximize the creaminess. Also, for people who may have felt it didn't have enough flavor, try using a little extra ginger, a little cayenne pepper, some cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice. Adds a little more Thai / Latin American influence. Hearty and reheats really well; we'll be making this again.  -  15 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
