Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Cook the pasta

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

  • 2.

    Fry the chorizo & the tomatoes

    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.

    Make the sauce

    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.

Tasty dish and very easy to prepare. The chorizo we used was a bit on the spicy side and I think a milder one would have been better.

Very good. Not a difficult one to replicate, but i guess the point is you probably wouldn't think to make it if you didn't have the kit in front of you.
