    This is an easy simple recipe, you can cook for your family in no time. You can use a packet of chorizo form the market, but I like to buy from the butcher.

    Made it healthier. Swap cream for creme fraiche - this works with most pasta recipies such as carbonara for a lighter but still tasty version  -  15 Jan 2009
