Method

  1. Cook the penne following pack instructions, adding the broccoli for the final 3 mins. When cooked, drain, reserving a splash of the cooking water.
  2. Meanwhile, fry the chorizo in a large dry frying pan until it starts to turn golden and release its oils. Add the garlic and fennel seeds, and cook for 1 min more. When the penne is cooked, tip it into the pan with the chorizo. Add the cream cheese, stir together until melted, adding a splash of the reserved cooking water so the sauce coats the pasta.
  3. Serve in bowls, scattered with a few rocket leaves and some grated Parmesan, if you like.

Really tasty, we both enjoyed this, my only swap was creme fraiche for the cheese.

Very tasty. I changed the chorizo for bacon and used ordinary cream cheese to keep everyone happy!
