Pasta with Chorizo, Peas & Rocket

On 14th September 2015, This was Dinner

This recipe is taken from a Donna Hay recipe which uses fresh, torn lasagne sheets but Mr S misunderstood my note and bought dried pasta so I just used up the pasta we had in the pantry.

I had some rocket which needed using up so I added that too.


  • Thickly slice some chorizo
  • Slice a leek
  • Juice a lemon
  • Grate some parmesan
  • Pick some mint leaves
  • Get rocket, pasta, frozen peas, oil & seasoning ready


Cook the pasta in boiling, salted water.

Heat some oil in a pan and cook the leek until softened. Remove from the pan.

Cook the chorizo in the pan.

Just before the pasta is cooked, throw the peas in and cook for a few more minutes. Drain and add the chorizo, rocket and leek. Add some of the lemon juice and some seasoning to taste.

Serve with the mint leaves and a scattering of the parmesan.

If it’s got peas and chorizo in it, I’m in heaven.
