  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2tsp chilli flakes
  • Handful of chorizo, sliced and halved
  • 10-15g sunflower seeds
  • Pinch of salt & pepper
  • 10 coriander leaves, ripped
  • 2-3 mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 tin of tomatoes, chopped
  • 1tbsp oil
  • 50g pasta
  • 1-2 sun-dried tomatoes


  1. COOK PASTA- fill pan 1/4 to 1/2 the way of water and add a pinch of salt, then boil. Once there's bubbles pour in pasta to cook and put lid on with a little gap. Stir occasionally so pasta doesn't stick until pasta is cooked. Drain and put back in pan to stir in sauce.

  2. In a small pan put oil and onion over heat until onions have sweated, 2-3mins. Then add garlic, chorizo and sunflower seeds to cook for 3-4mins.

  3. Once chorizo has crisped a bit add sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, salt, pepper and chilli flakes and stir.

  4. After the mushrooms have softened pour tinned tomatoes and coriander and stir. Then put lid on and leave to simmer for 5-7mins.

  5. Finally, remove from heat and mix into cooked pasta and serve!
