Penne alla Rustica4.7/5 (BASED ON 22 reviews)
A simple yet impressive Mediterranean-inspired dish taking influences from Spanish sweet roasted red peppers and spicy chorizo and pairing it with Sicilian lemon, garlic and rosemary along with Italy’s juicy sweet cherry tomatoes.

Our 20 minute recipe
Cook the pasta in a pot of boiling water for 8-10 mins, or until it's cooked to your liking.
Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat (with no oil) and add the chorizo slices. Fry them for 2 mins. Melt a knob of butter in the pan and add the tomatoes and the Wild Garlic & Rosemary. Stir well and then let it cook for 2 mins so the tomatoes begin to soften. Add the Rustica Paste to the pan and mix well.
Add the Red Pepper Sprinkle to the pan. Pour in the cream and mix well. Let it gently bubble for 3 mins, stirring until the cream reduces by half. Add the peas (if using) and simmer for 2 more mins.
Drain the pasta and stir it into your sauce, then serve it with some grated parmesan sprinkled over.

Kids adored this. Very quick to make too.
Adrian - Jul 05, 2018
It’s good. Very comforting. I did not add the rntite content of the paste because it would make the dish too salty! I have also noticed that glucose syrup is being added to your sauces!!! Please don’t do it and tell people to use sugar if the want dome sweetness in their sauces.

Myself and my daughter wasn't keen on this particular dish. I found it quite salty and rich. It was in no way unpleasant to eat, just not to my taste. However, my son a husband liked it very much -
