Ingredients

  • 200g penne
  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 100g chorizo, skin removed and cut into chunks
  • 400g can cherry tomatoes
  • 2-3 guindilla pickled chilli peppers, sliced on an angle
  • ½ small pack basil, leaves picked and roughly torn
  • Parmesan, grated, to serve

Method

  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Add the pasta, give it a good stir, then cook for 1 min less than pack instructions, about 9-10 mins.

  2. Heat the oil in a sauté pan over a high heat. Add the chorizo and cook for a couple of mins until the oils have been released, then add the tomatoes, a pinch of sugar and some seasoning. Bubble away for 5 mins, then drain the pasta, toss it through the sauce and stir in the peppers and basil. Serve with a generous grating of parmesan scattered over.
