Quick and Easy Chorizo Pasta
- 1 lb chorizo sausage
1 lb pasta (penne, spaghetti – whatever you like!)
- 350ml jar Cherry tomato sauce (if you can’t find cherry tomato sauce use 1 ½ c of plain tomato sauce and add 1 tsp natural sugar.
- 1 tsp garlic granules
- ½ tsp salt
- 1/3 c grated mozzarella cheese
- Fresh grated Parmesan to garnish
- Mixed sprouts to garnish
Step by Step Instructions
Put a large pot of salted water on to boil for the pasta. When the water reaches a boil cook the pasta to al dente as per package instructions.
Place the sausages into a large, heavy skillet over medium heat and brown them on all sides. When the sausages are nicely browned remove them to a plate and set aside to cool for a few minutes.
Add the tomato sauce to the same pan that you browned the sausages and bring it to a boil. Add the salt and garlic granules and mix well, then add the mozzarella and stir well until the cheese has melted into the sauce.
When the sausages have cooled a few minutes cut them into thinish rounds and add them back into the sauce. Maintain a gentle boil until the pasta is done and the sausage is cooked through, being careful not to let the sauce reduce too much.
When the pasta is al dente, drain well and add it to the skillet with the sauce and mix well until the pasta is evenly coated.
Serve into shallow bowls, sprinkle generously with fresh grated Parmesan and top with fresh green sprouts then sit down and enjoy this quick, delicious, and slightly spicy pasta dish!
