My Creamy Chorizo Pasta Recipe

Time for another recipe because I'm pretty much spending my days cooking and baking at the moment. There's not really much else to do is there? I find the evening has become my favourite part of the day because I can spend time in the kitchen making a delicious meal (most of the time, there are definitely occasions it all goes wrong) and then George and I can settle down with a boxset or a film with Bear. It's the little things like that I'm really looking forward to each day now. I've shared quite a few pasta recipes on my blog over the years because let's face it, carbs are life so if you want to give any of them a try, there's pizza pasta bake, cheesy chicken and bacon pasta bake, veggie filled conchiglioni, crispy parma ham mac & cheese, creamy pesto pasta, a budget friendly sausage pesto pasta bake and finally a spicy meatball pasta. As you can tell, we're fans of a pasta bake in this house! So, today I'm sharing how to make a creamy chorizo pasta dish which was just such a comforting meal a few weeks ago.

Ingredients: for 2 people
1/2 an onion, finely diced
1/2 a ring of chorizo, sliced into chunks
2 gloves of garlic, crushed
160g pasta
1 tbsp mixed herbs
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
Salt & pepper
2 handfuls of frozen peas
150ml double cream
Grated cheese

Method:
1. Start by gently frying your diced onion and crushed garlic before adding in your chorizo chunks. Leave to cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. This allows the chorizo to crisp up a little and release lots of flavour
2. When your chorizo has crisped up a little and the onion has softened, add in your mixed herbs, tomato puree and honey
3. Stir well and leave to bubble away for a few minutes
4. Pour in your chopped tomatoes along with the peas and season with salt and pepper before leaving to simmer for around 10-15 minutes
5. Cook your pasta as you normally would or according to packet instructions then drain
6. Add in 150ml of double cream to your sauce and stir until everything is combined then add in your cooked pasta
7. Mix the sauce and the pasta together well then serve in bowls with grated cheese on top

This really was a beautiful pasta dish and I'm so excited to make it again. I don't often cook with chorizo just because I use some of it and then don't know what to do with the rest so it ends up getting wasted but I've really tried to make the most out of it this time. You could easily leave out the chorizo and have it as a meat free meal, maybe pack it full of some extra veggies or it would be great with sausage, bacon or chicken!

Let me know if you give this a try or if you have any other pasta meals you recommend!

Cheesy and creamy pasta has been one of my favourite meals since I was a child - now I'm loving vegan versions x

Looks lovely, I would take out the honey as it would be too sweet for me :)

Ooh yay!

Tiffany Timms said...

Thank you so much xx

Tiffany Timms said...

You can't beat a cheesy pasta dish can you. Glad you've found a vegan alternative! x

Tiffany Timms said...

You could absolutely do that! I found it balanced out the spiciness of the chorizo but it would work just as well without it xx

Tiffany Timms said...

Yay I'm so glad xx

Tiffany Timms said...

I really hope you do! xx

Tiffany Timms said...

Thanks Jenny, I totally agree xx

Tiffany Timms said...

Tiffany Timms said...

Me too, it adds so much flavour xx

Tiffany Timms said...

Oh yay I hope you do! xx

You can't beat a bowl of pasta! I found a little bit of honey balanced out the spiciness of the chorizo I used but you could totally make it without xx
