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.

Altered slightly for a more healthier meal but fantastic
Caroline - Aug 19, 2018
Really easy and quick to make. Delicious! I chopped up the chorizo really small as my mother in law is weird about any meat that comes in sausage form, and she really enjoyed it!
Caroline - Aug 19, 2018
Delicious pasta, lots of flavour and huge portion size! My 2 year niece very much enjoyed it too. Look forward to eating it again
Lindsay - Aug 16, 2018
Unbearable, Too many herbs. Couldn’t eat it.
Mia - Aug 13, 2018
Very heavy meal and should be served in smaller portions, probably the best pasta i've ever tasted. Next time i will probably slice the chorizo into quarters as they held a very strong taste.
Lucy - Aug 12, 2018
Thought this was incredibly tasty, however for us the cream was a little heavy. Fabulous flavours though.
