Ingredients

  • 140g chorizo, thickly sliced

    Chorizo

    chore-reeth-oh

    A coarsely textured spiced pork sausage widely used in Spanish and Mexican cooking. It is made…

  • 1 onion, chopped

    Onion

    un-yun

    Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. Native to Asia…

  • 680g jar passata
  • 1 butternut squash (approx 1kg/2lb 4oz), peeled and cut into 1-2cm chunks
  • flat-leaf parsley, chopped

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.

Very tasty, cheap and easy to make. I added butterbeans as others suggested and cooked for longer to soften the squash. All in all a good addition to the repertoire!

This has definitely made it into our regular repertoire. I also added garlic, butter beans, sweet potato and a teaspoon of paprika, the flavour was lovely and the additions made it a substantial meal

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.
