Spaghetti Aglio Olio with Chorizo

This pasta dish is perfect on a hot summer day. I know its not exactly authentic but the chorizo goes beautifully with it.


1/2 packet of spaghetti
1 chorizo sausage
3 - 4 sprigs fresh thyme
6 - 8 cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/2 spanish onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
olive oil
fresh parsley, chopped
fresh parmesan, grated
sea salt and cracked pepper


Cook the spaghetti in boiling, salted water until al dente. In a heavy based pan heat the oil and fry the chorizo for a few minutes on a high heat. Add the onion, garlic and thyme and cook for a further minute. Turn the heat off and add the tomatoes, lots of olive oil and the pasta so that the tomatoes are warmed through without being cooked. Stir in the parsley, salt and pepper and a good handful of parmesan.
