Vodka cream penne with chorizo

Vodka cream penne with chorizo

Ludicrously easy and endlessly tasty, this penne makes use of the flavours from the sausages so that no other flavourings are necessary. I used Eumundi Smokehouse sausages in a variety of flavours as I had purchased some Chorizo, Russian Farmers and Kasana although feel free to use just one of course.

An original recipe by Not Quite Nigella

  • 1/2 onion chopped

  • 1 tablespoon of oil for frying

  • 1 Chorizo sausage sliced and cut into bite sized pieces

  • 100ml/3.5flozs cream (or low fat evaporated milk)

  • 250g/8.8ozs penne pasta

  • 1/2 cup frozen peas

  • 1/4 cup vodka

Step 1 - Boil penne in plenty of salted boiling water until al dente.

Step 2 - Meanwhile, fry onion in some oil in a large saucepan until it starts to get soft, then add sliced chorizo and cook both until chorizo is browned on edges.

Step 3 - Add peas, cream and vodka and cook for a few minutes.

Step 4 - Drain pasta and tip this in the saucepan and coat the penne with the creamy vodka laced sauce.

Step 5 - Serve in warmed plate with a grind of cracked black pepper. You shouldn't need much salt if any, the chorizo is usually very flavoursome with garlic and salt.

Serves 2 fairly hungry people or one very hungry husband.
