Improvised Chorizo Pasta

 Happy Sunday everyone! I'm a huge advocate of quick and simple meals as I am either cooking before/after work, or on my days off where I'm either super productive and end up having no time OR (probably more likely) that I'm too lazy that I just can not be bothered to spend ages cooking one meal for one... Long story short I don't spend a long time cooking meals these days, which is a shame, or maybe it isn't?
So here's what you need for my Improvised Chorizo Pasta:
  • Garlic and Onions to taste
  • Chorizo
  • Veg (this is the improvised so chose your favourite veggies and pop it in)
  • Passata, or Canned Tomatoes with Tomato Sauce
  • Pasta obviously
  • olive oil, salt, and pepper
  • and CHEESE for garnishing!


Put your pasta in some boiling water with olive oil and salt. 

 Let your pasta cook while you get on with frying your onion and garlic until cooked. Then add the chorizos and cook for about 10 minutes or so before adding the veg of your choice. I've added celery just because it was what I had in the fridge and I was too lazy (this is a no judgement zone) to nip to the shops...
by now your pasta should be cook so just drain it and put it aside for later.

add in the veg. If you have a few you might want to put them in at different times depending on how long each one might take to cook, but it's not a big deal if you just throw it in all at once :)
When all the veg is cooked, add in Passata and cook until it reaches boiling point. Reduce for about 5 minutes. You don't want the sauce to be too thick as you want it to cover all the pasta.

Add in the Pasta and you are good to go!
Sprinkle cheese, salt and pepper to taste and indulge in your quick and easy meal or meals if you cooked a huge portion(s) like meeeee.
