Ingredients

  • 150 g chorizo (roughly chopped)
  • 4 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
  • 4 peppers (mixture of red and yellow ), halved, deseeded and roughly chopped)
  • 160 g button mushrooms (halved)
  • 400 g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 tsp dried red chilli flakes
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 450 g spaghetti (broken in half)
  • 1 litre water (boiling)
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 handful basil leaves (roughly chopped)
  • 30 g Parmesan  (freshly grated)


Method

  1. Heat a large, deep-sided casserole or frying pan over a high heat, add the chorizo and cook for 2–3 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic, peppers and button mushrooms and cook for another 2–3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato purée, chilli flakes and red wine vinegar. Stir in the spaghetti, pour in the boiling water and stir well.
  4. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, cover with a lid and simmer for 12–15 minutes, or until the pasta is al dente, and the liquid has reduced to a thick sauce. Stir the mixture occasionally to make sure that the pasta is under the liquid and not sticking together.
  5. Stir in three quarters of the basil and plenty of black pepper
  6. Serve with the Parmesan and remaining basil.
