Creamy Chorizo Pasta Sauce recipe


  • 2 tins of chopped tomatoes (800g)
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 225g chorizo sausage
  • 175ml double cream
  • Pinch of caster sugar
  • Pinch of chilli flakes
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 or 4 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • Handful of parsley
  • Olive oil

Method of Preparation:

  1. Using the back of a large knife, bash the garlic and peel it.

  2. Finely chop the chorizo sausage, removing the skin if there is any.

  3. Pluck the rosemary leaves from the stalks and finely chop them, as well as the parsley.

  4. Heat the olive oil in a pan until warm and then add the garlic. Cook the garlic for five minutes and then remove it. The oil will now be garlic infused and deliciously aromatic. You could of course use garlic infused olive oil at this stage.

  5. Add the tomatoes, along with the sugar and the chilli flakes and simmer the mixture for five minutes.

  6. Season the sauce well and add the rosemary.

  7. Add the cream at this stage with the parsley and stir everything together.

  8. Simmer for a further ten minutes or until the mixture has reduced by half.

  9. Serve hot over pasta or cold if using as a dip.
