Chorizo tagliatelle with leek, mushrooms and rocket


I was inspired by my friend Rebecca to make this pasta dish; spicy sausage and leek, who else? But my favourite Welshie!? Haha 😉


Serves one

80g Pasta (I used my favourite tagliatelle)
1 small chorizo sausage, sliced
Half a leek, sliced
3 Chestnut mushrooms
Tsp Olive oil
Handful of rocket


1) Put the pasta on to cook, simmering for c. 8 minutes on a medium/high heat

2) Heat a frying pan and cook the chorizo (giving it the occasional stir) until it begins to release its beautiful tasty oil

3) Add the leek and a little water and cook on a medium heat, stirring occasionally

4) When the liquid is cooked down, add the mushrooms and a teaspoon of olive oil

5) Drain the pasta and add to frying pan with a little of the cooking water

6) Season with salt and pepper to taste and stir in the rocket until its wilted slightly

7) Serve. Delicious!
