    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.
