20 minutes Spanish Chorizo and Beef Pasta

Spanish Chorizo and Beef pasta

This probably is the favorite recipe of Will (my Boyfriend in case you are new to the blog). Lucky for me it is so easy to do that I always save this recipe for those days that I’m not feeling like spending hours in the kitchen.

It is easy as tasty and you will only take 20 minutes to do it – pretty amazing huh?.

Spanish Chorizo and Beef pasta

The key ingredient of this recipe is the always imponent Spanish chorizo. If you have never tasted it, go now to the supermarket and join to the fans club of this super flavor-rich sausage.

Of course you can use another kind of sausage, but I promise you that Spanish people have mastered the art of a good sausage.  The main difference is the smoky flavor that goes well with the right amount of paprika and garlic that they use to “cure” the sausage.

The result of this process is a sausage with a strong and deep flavor that works wonder with a tomato and beef sauce.

Spanish Chorizo

This is a cowboy pasta: Beef, thick tomato sauce and … CHORIZO!

Also, I add brown mushrooms to the mix because, well I’m a mushroom junkie and I want the earthy flavor in any sauce. You can completely skip the mushrooms if you don’t like their texture or flavor.
