Im very much into pasta’s lately. Easy to make with so many options and endless amounts of flavours to add. This pasta is inspired by a pizza we had in Australia. Quick, easy and delicious. This recipe serves 4 people.
4 pork chorizo sausages
1/2 green chilli, sliced very thinly
16 garlic cloves, pealed and kept whole
1 cup fresh basil leaves
250g dried pasta of your choice
salt and pepper
shaved parmesan cheese to serve
Pre heat your oven to 160 degrees Celcius. Place the garlic cloves in a small oven proof dish. Pour oil over the garlic cloves to cover them completely and cook in the oven for 30 minutes.
Heat a large pot of salted water and boil the pasta as per the packet instructions.
While the pasta is boiling, squeeze the meat out of the chorizo sausages and break up in to small pieces before frying in a pan with 1/4 cup of oil. Once cooked turn off the heat and add the cooked garlic cloves and sliced chilli. Stir together.
Drain the pasta once cooked and add to the pan with the chorizo mixture. Add most of your basil leaving some for garnish. Drizzle with a little bit more olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Serve with the shaved parmesan cheese and enjoy.
