Chorizo & Sweet Potato Pasta

Chorizo-sweet-potato-pasta-FEATURE-750x480

This is SOOOOO easy.

This is a great dish you can prepare in advance and just toss the spinach through before serving.

I would say this serves about 4-5 people, and as this can be served hot OR cold its a great dish to take to a barbecue thats just something a little different from your average salad or coleslaw.

Ingredients

3 cups of penne pasta (or any pasta is fine)

2 chorizo sliced and browned gently in a fry pan

1 medium cubed sweet potato (roasted)

70g of butter

1/2 teaspoon of dried sage

2 cups of spinach

Once your pasta is cooked al dente, drain and set aside.  To stop it sticking, add a small teaspoon of butter and stir through.  In the frying pan you used to brown your chorizo, add the 70g of butter and 1/2 teaspoon of dried sage and cook on high until bubbling.  Add the cooked pasta, the roasted sweet potato, chorizo to the butter sauce.  Stir until all the ingredients are covered.

Just before serving, toss the spinach leaves through so you have that lovely fresh bite.  season with a little pepper.

 

Enjoy!
