Method

  1. Put a pan of water on over a high heat to boil. Meanwhile, snip the chorizo into strips with scissors, and chop the parsley and peppers (check for stray seeds first).
  2. When the water is boiling briskly, add the spaghetti with a good measure of salt, stir and return to the boil. Cook for 3 minutes.
  3. In a large frying pan, heat the oil, add the chorizo and peppers and plenty of black pepper. Cook for a minute or so, until heated through and the juices are stained red from the paprika in the chorizo. Scoop half a mugful of pasta water from the pan, drain the remainder and tip the spaghetti into the frying pan.
  4. Add the parsley and parmesan, toss well and splash in the pasta water, to moisten. Hand round extra parmesan at the table.

So quick and easy! I chopped up a chorizo sausage, used up a jar of peppers and we were having supper outside in no time. Goes great with a glass of Roija as well....

Really enjoyed this recipe. Easy to do and very tasty. Used a chunk of chorizo and chopped it into small pieces which was tastier than the thin chorizo. Also found it mixed better when using pasta shapes instead of spaghetti.

Very nice and super quick. I couldnt find the peppers in my supermarket, so I used sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil instead. I tnk I got the same result, and will contine to cook this with the tomatoes instead.
