Mediterranean Chorizo Pasta

Delicious, easy Spring dinner

We have never been huge Chorizo eaters. Simply because I never bought any, and I think we only had some once at a restaurant a few years ago. I have since started to use Chorizo in my cooking, but will now have to say goodbye again as it is one of the no-no’s on my new diet. {diet meaning, health wise, not actually for losing weight}

All of us thoroughly enjoyed this Mediterranean Chorizo Pasta and I will highly recommend you to try this delicious recipe.

  3. Chorizo is a favorite at our house – but I try to limit it since it's not the healthiest choice out there! 🙂 Pinned and will be sharing on FB!!
