Easy Peasy Chorizo Pasta



It's a little slow for me but I have only recently discovered the lovely flavours of chorizo sausages. To me, it is like the Italian version of Lup Chong (which is like a dried cured style of chinese sausage) only that the chorizo is spicier.

What do I do with it? well.. pasta of course. ;)

Easy Peasy Chorizo Pasta
250 grams of spaghetti
1 chorizo sausage sliced
2 cups of peas
1 small bunch of broccoli
1 cup of long beans

Cook pasta till done. Drain and set aside.

In a deep pan, fry chorizo (using a cold pan so that the oil drains out from the chorizo) till done. I drained abit of the oil out but if you want more flavour, you can leave it in. Add peas and beans. Toss spaghetti through. Season to taste.

Dishing this to my friends from Presto Pasta founded by Ruth from Once Upon a Feast. This week it is hosted by Katie from One Little Corner of the World.

Oh ya. I would make this. I love chorizo sausage. I also always have polska kielbasa in the house, which would be an okay substitute. And I'm all about the peas. I seem to be putting peas in everything lately.

I love using chorizo in my pasta too. Goes very well with a tomato based sauce as well. Very versatile.
