Courgette and Chorizo Pasta A La Crema…
This was a swift store cupboard special supper and one of the tastiest of the last week. I wanted to adapt my usual lardon and courgette pasta…and the simple answer was replace the lardons with cubed chorizo. The result was a sublime cocktail of flavours that slipped down and satisfied.
Do this. It is going to make your week.
100 gm of cubed chorizo
One courgette cubed
50ml single cream
Small bunch of coriander chopped
Sea salt and black pepper
In a splash of olive oil heated for a minute, add the courgette and pan fry until starting to just brown, then add the chorizo and continue frying gently whilst you cook the pasta.
Just before you drain the pasta, add the cream and a grind of sea salt and black pepper. Then add the chopped coriander.
Serve on the hot pasta.
Quick, sensuous and delectable. It’s what suppers should be.
