I am keeping the holiday feeling going tonight with this Mediterranean Chicken Pasta with Chorizo – all ingredients from Aldi! The chorizo adds so much flavour, and is really delicious. It only cost £1.49 for 170g, and I will use the rest later in the week.
Mediterranean Chicken Pasta with Chorizo
300g pasta bows
2 chicken breasts, sliced
Large white onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
Large red pepper, chopped
1.5 cans chopped tomatoes or passata (600g)
1 heaped tsp mixed herbs
85g chopped chorizo
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat the oil and fry the onions, garlic and chicken breasts until the chicken is more or less cooked on both sides. Add the pepper and cook for a few minutes or so then add the tomatoes, herbs and chorizo. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile cook the pasta in a large pan of salted boiling water until al dente. Drain and mix with the sauce, and serve with some grated cheese and a nice green salad.
This Mediterranean Chicken Pasta with Chorizo was easy to make, which I needed today as I was unpacking and catching up with laundry. It’s good to be back and I even got the sun today, so can’t complain. What are you cooking?
