Very rich full of fat - but delicious - only have as a rare treat!!!


For the Pasta

  • 200g of Dried Pasta - any type works but I use tagliatelle
  • 2 tbsp of oil
  • Pinch of salt

For the Sauce

  • 1 tsp of oil
  • 3/4 Frankfurters sliced on the diagonal
  • 1 small onion - chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves - minced
  • 15g Chirizo Sausage - chopped into small pieces
  • Pinch of Dried Chilli Flakes
  • Pinch of Dried Basil
  • 200ml of Cream
  • 25g Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Pinch of salt
  • Large pinch of Ground Black pepper


  • STEP 1
    Heat a pot of water on a medium to high heat - Once at the simmer add the salt and oil - bring to the boil and add the pasta - Stir frequently to prevent sticking
  • STEP 2
    While the pasta cooks prepare your ingredients for the sauce - everything goes in pretty quick so pre prepared is best.
  • STEP 3
    Heat the oil in a non stick pan over a medium heat.
  • STEP 4
    Add the Garlic and Onion and cook for 1 minute
  • STEP 5
    Add the Frankfurter and Chirizo and fry until the Chirizo starts to release an orange coloured oil
  • STEP 6
    Add the chilli, basil (if using) and the black pepper. Add half the cream and half the parmesan - reduce to thicken
  • STEP 7
    Once it has thickened repeat with the remaining cream and cheese and reduce again
  • STEP 8
    Drain the pasta once cooked and add the sauce mixture - stir until all the pasta is coated and serve with a pinch of pepper and parmesan over the top
