  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red onion diced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 450 grams chorizo sausages cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon chili flakes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 ½ cups tomato puree (passata)
  • 320 grams dried pasta (I used casarecce)
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese optional
  • chopped parsley to garnish


  • Heat olive oil in a heavy based pot on high heat and add chopped sausages, onion and garlic. Saute for 5-7 minutes until the sausages are brown and the onions are soft.
  • Add tomato paste and stir through. Cook for an additional minute until the tomato paste is fragrant and starting to darken in colour.
  • Turn down the heat to medium/low and add in the spices and salt and pepper, followed by the stock and the tomato puree. Finally stir through the dried pasta and put the lid on.
  • Cook for approximately 15 minutes, stirring occasionally so the pasta doesn’t stick, or until the pasta is cooked through. Cooking time will be dependent on the type of pasta you use.
  • Remove the lid and finish cooking for a few minutes to thicken the sauce. Take off the heat and stir through the parmesan and parsley if using and serve.
