Mediterranean Chorizo Pasta

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.

Oh I am so sorry, Chorizo is big in our house, it's one of the few meals they all love, I think Julian would rather get sick than be told he couldnt have them LOL
