Chilli and Prawn Chorizo Spaghetti
A quick and simple pasta dish that's guaranteed to cheer you up mid week and can be cooked and on the plate in twenty minutes. Packed full of chilli heat and smoky paprika from the chorizo, offset by the delicate prawns, it's a real effortless crowd-pleaser.
1 onion, diced
1 crushed garlic clove
1 sliced red chillies with seeds left in (or removed if you'd like a milder version)
100g raw prawns
2 mini cooking chorizo sausages
2 tbsp chopped parsley
Saute the diced onion and garlic in two tbsp olive oil and once softened, add the chilli and continue to cook for a further five minutes to flavour the oil.
Chop the chorizo into thin coin shapes and add to the pan and allow to cook through for a further five minutes, tossing occassionally.
Cook the spaghetti according to the packet instructions and just before cooked add the raw prawns to the pan. Turn once the prawns have coloured - shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes.
Before draining the pasta add 2 tbsp of the water to the pan and stir through. Add the drained pasta to the pan and stir through so it's all coated in the flavoursome oil. Finally stir through some freshly chopped parsley before serving.
