This is a quick and easy dinner and since we have plenty of home made pasta I figured we better start eating it a bit more often. We very rarely eat creamy style pasta, normally opting for tomato and vegetable sauces, so this one is a real treat for us.
Chorizo, Pea and Mushroom Pasta
400g Pasta (Shells or Fettuccine work well)
2 Tbs Olive Oil
25 gm Butter
1 Brown Onion finely diced
1 Chorizo Sausage diced
1 Cup Peas
6 Button Mushrooms diced
1/2 Cup of Cream
Get your water on for you pasta. The sauce takes about 15 minutes so cook your pasta to be ready at the same timeHeat the oil and butter in a large fry pan and add the finely diced onion and fry until soft and golden. Add the diced chorizo and fry until starting to colour then add the mushrooms an cook for a minute before adding the peas. Once the peas are cooked add the cream and salt and pepper to taste cooking for another minute to allow the flavours to blend.
Add your drained pasta to the sauce and mix to combine. Serve topped with grated pecorino cheese if available.
