This is a very simple dish but tastes great with grated parmesan and garlic bread. A quick store cupboard tea for those in a rush!

  • Dash of olive oil
  • 3 crushed garlic cloves
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 20 or so thinly sliced mushrooms
  • Fresh basil, chopped
  • 250ml double cream
  • 2 tea spoons of mild chilli power
  • Black pepper
  • Salt
  • Thinly sliced Chorizo
  • 400g Tinned Tomatoes
  • Enough pasta for 4 people


    1. Pour the oil into a large pan (a wok is the best option) and sauté the onion, garlic and mushrooms until the onion is translucent, the garlic is cooked (but not brown) and the mushrooms are just about cooked.
    2. Add the chorizo and tinned tomatoes; simmer for 5 minutes
    3. Whilst the sauce is cooking add your pasta to very salted boiling water (the Italians say the water should be as salty as the Mediterranean Sea).
    4. Add chilli powder, black pepper, fresh basil a sprinkle of salt to the sauce and cook for a further 5 minutes. Stirring on a regular basis.
    5. Stir in the cream and cook for 5 minutes, stirring on a regular basis
    6. Drain the pasta once cooked and add to the sauce. Cooked on a high heat for 1 minute whilst stirring. Do not let it stick.
    7. Garnish with chopped basil, grated parmesan cheese and black pepper.
    8. Serve with garlic bread.

Loved this. The chorizo works really well. I spiced mine up with a touch more hot chilli powder but it was absolutely beautiful and took very little time to prepare. As usual, it is imperative to use fresh herbs! Great recipe for a quick and tasty meal!

This was delicious, kids loved it as well. I added a little honey to sweeten the tomatoes, and just a little cream. A real winner.

Cooked for lunch at fire station for 15 blokes.Replaced the cream with creme fraiche and would add chicken for a main meal. Easy to make and taste good

Loved this, and would definitely make it again. I used half the amount of mushrooms, cream and chilli powder as it would have been too rich for my taste.

This was amazing, I used regular cream instead of double cream as that's all they had in the shop. I think it might have been too heavy with the double cream. Will definitely make this again, quick, easy and delicious :)

So quick and easy yet tastes gorgeous! I swapped the cream for creme fraiche and reduced the chilli poweder slightly, goes down a treat :-)
