Pasta with chorizo, tomato and basil

all details

A simple mid-week meal with fabulous flavours.

Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • 3 chorizo, thinly sliced
  • 500g truss cherry tomatoes
  • 400g pappardelle
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • sea salt and cracked black pepper
  • 2 x 125g buffalo mozzarella, torn
  • Finely grated parmesan, to serve

Method

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Heat the oil in a small saucepan over high heat. Carefully add the basil leaves a few at a time, as they may spit, and fry until crisp. Drain on absorbent paper and set aside.

Place the chorizo and tomato on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper and roast for 15 minutes or until chorizo is golden. While the chorizo is roasting, cook the pasta in a saucepan of salted boiling water for 10 to 12 minutes or until al dente. Drain and keep warm.

Add the olive oil, lemon rind and garlic to the pan and cook for 1 minute. Return the pasta to the pan with the chorizo, tomato, salt and pepper and toss to combine.

Divide the pasta between plates and top with the mozzarella, parmesan and fried basil leaves to serve.

    5 star rating. This was brilliant. I substituted crumbled Fetta for the mozzarella, and also added some baby spinach leaves (at the last minute) that I had left over in the fridge..even my most fussy of eaters enjoyed thoroughly....and I added chilli flakes to the last serving for the chilli crazed husband.. do heed the warning about frying the basil leaves...make sure they are dry before popping in the oil, and have a splatter guard handy to avoid splatters of oil all over the stovetop...this is the only tricky part of this recipe...the rest is super quick and simple. Love you Donna Hay...thanks for another addition to my favourite recipes
