Chorizo Penne

Chorizos are such a tasty ingredient, that you don't need to add much more to make an excellent meal with them. Here, they are the key ingredient in a simple pasta dish.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4

400g penne
1 tsp olive oil
2 chorizos, thinly sliced
1 red onion, halved & cut into thin wedges
3-4 garlic cloves, crushed
2 vine ripened or roma tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
Grated parmesan, to serve

Cook pasta in a large saucepan until al dente.

Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat with the oil. Add chorizo and cook, stirring, for 4-5 minutes or until golden. Add onion and cook, stirring, for a further 2 minutes or until onion is translucent. Stir in garlic and tomatoes and cook, stirring, for a further 3-4 minutes.

Drain past and return to saucepan. Add the chorizo mixture along with the fresh parsley. Toss well to combine. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Serve sprinkled with parmesan.
