Simple tomato and chorizo spaghetti

I first wanted to have a meat free evening meal but then I spotted a chorizo in my fridge and thought it’s perfect for spicing up my tomato sauce!


2 chorizo sausages cut lengthwise and then sliced
1 yellow or red onion, finely chopped
1 red chilli, sliced
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
a healthy glug of olive oil
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp dried mixed Italian herbs
1 tsp sugar
½ tsp of cayenne pepper
½ a pint of tomato juice
a few drops of Worcester sauce
salt and pepper for seasoning
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
freshly chopped basil

Put a deep pan on the stove, turn the heat on and slowly fry the chorizo, onions and chilli in the olive oil. Once the onions turn a bit softer add the garlic. Then add the rest of the ingredients and bring to the boil. Turn the heat down and let it simmer until your noodles are ready. Plate up and sprinkle with fresh basil and Parmesan cheese.
