  • 140g chorizo, thickly sliced



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

  • 1 onion, chopped



    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


  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.

We really didn't enjoy this, way too tomatoey and the squash took way longer than 20 minutes to reach an acceptable softness. The recipe has been consigned to the recycling. There are much nicer things to do with chorizo and squash either separately or together. interesting that a lot of the five star reviews added a huge array of other ingredients.

Lovely recipe. I did add cumin and a little sugar plus some fresh basil near the end. Very tasty and will definitely cook again.

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!
