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. Serve!

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