Chorizo Sloppy Joe
  1. A quick flavourful pasta sauce. Use this in lasagna, tossed over spaghetti, over penne, or, if you want to squeeze more vegetables into your body, zucchini spaghetti.
  2. Serves 4
  3. 500g dried chozio (U –shaped from the superstore)
  4. 1 tbsp olive oil
  5. pinch dried chilli flakes
  6. ½ tsp smoked paprika
  7. 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  8. sea salt and black pepper
  9. ½ cup red wine
  10. 400g can chopped tomatoes
  11. splash maple syrup
  12. 4 zucchini (or 400g pasta)
  13. grated parmesan to serve
  1. Roughly chop chorizo then place in a food processor. Blitz until finely chopped.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large fry pan over medium heat. Add chorizo, chilli, paprika, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring every so often, until crispy. Turn up the heat and add wine and cook until bubbles calm down. Add tomatoes, stir and let it simmer away while you cook the pasta.
  3. Boil pasta according to package directions, or spiralize (or peel with a vegetable peeler) the zuchinni. Toss it in pan with a little butter to heat zucchini up a little, or just toss zucchini ribbons through warm sauce. Up to you.
  4. Spoon sauce over pasta or zucchini, and top with more pepper and shaved parmesan.
