creamy basil and chilli linguine slimming world recipe

We have to keep the heat quite low when making anything with chilli in it as Ella and I don’t like it too spicy so Ant never puts the recipe amount in when we’re eating!
This basil and chilli linguine pasta is a vegetarian Slimming World recipe and is quick to make. It’s also is another comfort food for me.
