Chorizo Pasta Bake

Who doesn’t love a good pasta bake? Seeing as I ran out of onions and couldn’t find any in stock for my home delivery, I used shallots for this recipe as a substitute instead. The chorizo really is the star of this dish and adds a depth of flavour to the sauce. A satisfying meal that’s quick and easy to make.

Serves 2-3 (depending on how hungry you are)

What you’ll need:

250g pasta

150g Spanish chorizo, diced

2 shallots, finely chopped

1-2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

400g tinned tomatoes

1 tbsp of tomato paste

1 tsp sugar

salt and pepper to taste

mozzarella cheese

Let’s kook:

1) Preheat oven to 200˚C

2) Bring a pot of water to the boil, add a pinch of salt before throwing the pasta in.

3) Meanwhile, heat up a pan and dry-fry the diced chorizo until crispy – the chorizo will give off oil (where the flavour is!)

4) Add the shallots and saute for about 2 mins then throw in the red pepper flakes, if using.

5) Pour in the tinned tomatoes, add the tomato paste, sugar and season with salt and pepper. Simmer for aprox. 5 mins

6) Drain the cooked pasta and add to the sauce.
