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.

Just ok for us I’m afraid. I make a better pasta sauce myself. The flavouring had a bit of a strange Mexican vibe to it. It was smoky but not very Italian tasting.

Hubby loved it....chorizo I'm not a fan really.

This is a very easy meal to cook, and tastes great, however I don’t think it’s worth the money as a “recipe kit” - the flavour pots were very basic and you could substitute them for standard things you already have at home for cheaper than the kit. Also found that leftovers the next day we’re pretty dry as there’s very little sauce to begin with, and that dries up completely by the next day. All in all, it’s nice but could be a lot better.
