    1. Bring a large pot of water to the boil over high heat. Stir in the spaghetti and return to the boil. Cook the pasta until it has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 6-8 minutes. Drain well and keep warm.
    2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Stir in the tomatoes; cook until they soften and begin to break down. Stir in the garlic granules, oregano, basil, salt, pepper, sugar and ketchup. Heat sauce through and reserve.
    3. Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons oil in a separate cast iron frying pan over medium heat. Stir in chicken; cook until browned. Stir in crushed garlic cloves; cook for 1 additional minute.
    4. Remove chicken from frying pan and reserve. Turn heat to high. Stir the green pepper, red pepper, onion and mushrooms into the frying pan and cook until they begin to soften. Stir in browned chicken and turn heat to medium; cook until chicken is no longer pink in the centre and the vegetables are cooked through, about 5 minutes.
    5. Toss the chicken and vegetables with the tomato sauce and the hot pasta. Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
