Ingredients

  • 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

Method

  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 3
    Once chorizo has crisped a bit add sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, salt, pepper and chilli flakes and stir.
  • STEP 4
    After the mushrooms have softened pour tinned tomatoes and coriander and stir. Then put lid on and leave to simmer for 5-7mins.
  • STEP 5
    Finally, remove from heat and mix into cooked pasta and serve!
