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.
