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

  • 1.

    Cook the pasta in a pot of boiling water for 8-10 mins, or until it's cooked to your liking.

  • 2.

    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.

  • 3.

    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.

  • 4.

    Drain the pasta and stir it into your sauce, then serve it with some grated parmesan sprinkled over.

Beautiful dish. Replaced bits with sugar snap and green pepper. Really good will.order again

Nice enough, but while I understand (after ten years in Italy) that anything alla Rustica is going to adjust to local tastes and availability, the flavour seemed more Middle Eastern or even Asian than Italian.
