Prawn and Chorizo Spaghetti

Prawn and Chorizo Spaghetti

with Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce

In the heady days of his youth, our Head Chef Patrick's favourite date night restaurant was a little Spanish place in London's Borough market. He ended up going there so often that he became best mates with the chef and started working in the kitchen at weekends! The classic Iberian combo of prawns and chorizo remains a favourite and he presents it here. Good for date night or any other night too!

Instructions

1

Fill and boil your kettle. Put a large saucepan of water with a generous pinch of salt on to boil for the pasta. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all). Pop the sundried tomatoes in a small bowl and cover in the boiling water (see ingredients for amount).

Cook the Spaghetti
2

Add the spaghetti to your pan of boiling water and cook for 8 mins. When you drain the pasta, keep a little of the water in case you need it to loosen the sauce.

Start the Garlic
3

Meanwhile, heat a splash of olive oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat. Add the chorizo and cook until golden and the chorizo has released its fragrant oils. Drain and roughly chop the sundried tomatoes.

Start the Prawns
4

Add the garlic to the pan. Cook for 2 mins, then pour in the tomato passata, tomato puree and sundried tomatoes. Let the mixture simmer on medium heat for 5-6 mins.

Add the Tomatoes
5

Stir in the prawns, cook for a further 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: The prawns are cooked when pink on the outside and opaque all the way through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve!
6

Drain the pasta in a colander and add it to the pan with the sauce. Tip: If the sauce is too thick at this point, loosen it up with a splash of the pasta water. Toss everything together. Divide between bowls and finish with a sprinkling of parsley. For the adults, sprinkle over a pinch of chilli flakes to taste. Tip: Some like it hot, but if that's not you then go easy on the chilli! Enjoy!
