by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

A super easy – and absolutely delicious! – Creamy Chorizo Pasta recipe that is great for a quick Friday night dinner at home with the family.

Quick and easy Creamy Chorizo Pasta recipe

Loads of people asked me for this recipe after I shared made it recently on my Instagram stories. It is so simple to make, and ridiculously yummy! I really enjoy sharing my dinners on my Instagram stories – I should do a live video one day.

This recipe can be thrown together in about 20 minutes. You simply brown the chorizo, add in the onion, then stir in the other ingredients. Whilst cooking up the creamy sauce I pop the pasta on to cook.

It’s then as easy as pouring the creamy chorizo sauce over the pasta and finishing off with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese – yum yum!

Thank you so much for this recipe! What a godsend. I made it last night whilst nursing a sick husband and making banana pancakes with my son. It was that easy! and although the patient was hesitant to have it, it wasn’t spicy at all. This will definitely become a staple in our kitchen.

Oh Amber, I am so sorry to hear that your husband is not well… but very happy to hear that this recipe helped a little 🙂

Made this last night. I swapped the pasta for zucchini pasta as I follow Paleo and don’t eat pasta. It was delicious. Had left overs for lunch. Will be making it again.

Whipped this up tonight for hubby’s birthday dinner, added 1cup of diced bbq chicken in the last minutes just to heat through…
Will definitely make it again, I reckon even the 10yr old budding chef could do it
