Red Pesto And Chorizo Pasta

So here is another post, really fast! This one is not to prepare every week, because this is really heavy on calories 😀 (well, you can if you want to :P) But it is soooooo good if you like a bit of spiceness… Try this one out for sure, it’s really simple and doesn’t require a lot of time at all!

red pesto

Ingredients:
servers 2

  • 300 gr of pasta (any kind you like)
  • 300 gr of chorizo, cut into small 1 cm chunks (you can have more or less chorizo, the choice is yours)
  • 2 heaped tablespoons of red pesto (± half of a 180-200 gr jar)
  • 250 ml of cream
  • Salt and pepper

Preparation:

  • Bring a large pot with salted water to the boil (go heavy on the salt, pasta needs a lot of salt!) and cook your pasta following the packet instructions and drain when ready
  • In a pan, fry the chorizo
  • If the chorizo is ready and has released all it’s yummie oils, add the cream and pesto.
  • Let this sauce simmer for a while to thicken and take it off the heat whenever it has the right consistency (wether you want a runny or a thick sauce, your choice)
  • Mix the pasta and sauce together and enjoy
