Method

  1. Heat a large pan, add the chorizo, then cook over a high heat for 2 mins until it starts to release its red oil. Lift the chorizo out of the pan, then add the onion and fry for 5 mins until starting to soften.
  2. Tip in the passata, squash and chorizo, bring to the boil, then cover and cook for 15-20 mins until the squash is softened, but not broken up. If you need to, add a little water during cooking. Season to taste, then serve in bowls scattered with parsley.

Thought I was giving it 5 stars not one!

I really liked this. I roasted the pumpkin halves in the oven for 30 minutes to start with as that makes for much easier chopping + better taste. I also added garlic, paprika and beans and omitted the parsley. Delicious!

A wonderfully tasty and easy dish. I added 3 cloves of garlic, red onions, paprika and fennel seeds which really worked. Will certainly make again.

Delicious, low calorie and very tasty. Added a teaspoon of Paprika and would probably add a green pepper as suggested before next time. Had some leftover, so blitzed it in a liquidiser and made a great pasta sauce for later in the week!

Cheap, fairly nutritious and easy to make. I added peas for extra veg and colour as well as using chopped toms. It was ideal for using up left overs.

This was absolutely lovely....not my usual kind of dish, but I loved it. I added some garlic and smoked paprika - then a tin of cannellini beans towards the end. I did have to cook for longer than stated, but it was well worth the wait! I will definitely be making this again!

Loved this - needed something more though - maybe aubergine. Anyway, divine flavour and have made twice already.

We love butternut squash, adore chorizo, but somehow this didn't work.

Absolutely delicious. I doubled the amount of chorizo and added a tin of butter beans to bulk it out a bit. Would definitely make again and just chuck in any extra veg I may have in the fridge at the time

Personally don't really think the squash and tomato passata went very well together, it was also a bit bland despite adding stock and seasoning. Not disgusting, but not worth making twice.

I added some hot chilli powder and some smoked praprika and also some garlic, I don't think It would have been so nice on its own.

It was nice, not brilliant... I wouldn't be in a hurry to have it again.

I added a finely diced clove of garlic and a tin of butter beans. I used 1/2 carton of passata and a tin of chopped tomatoes. I cooked it in my slow cooker overnight on low. Perfect. Served 6 with garlic bread. I would add a chopped green pepper next time. I didn't have a cinnamon stick but didn't miss it as the Chorizo I used was very spicy and provided enough warmth. I chopped it fairly small and my 4 year old loved it.

Made this twice, added butter beans, garlic, red pepper italian herbs and dried chilli all of which improved an already delicious autumnal dish.

We made this last night and will definitely be making it again. Tweaked the recipe slightly by adding in a couple of cloves of garlic, a chilli and a green pepper to the base. we didn't have passata so just used a tin of chopped tomatoes. Next time we would add in some cannelini beans to bulk it out so we wouldn't need bread. Although it was really good with garlic bread. Looking forward to the leftovers on a jacket potato for lunch today too!
