- 2 cups cherry tomatoes
- Medium sized onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tbsp oregano
- 1 tsp chili flakes
- 1 pinch each of salt and pepper
- 300g penne
- 1 chorizo sausage
- A few fresh basil leaves
- Cheese (I used gouda...because I live in Germany ö)
- 1\3 cup passata
- Olive oil for cooking
Cut cherry tomatoes in half and toss with 1 garlic clove (minced), and all the other spices, and some olive oil.
Place tossed tomatoes on a pan like the photo below, throw in the oven and roast those suckers for, well, around 10 minutes, but more if your oven is tricky like mine.
Sautee onions (chopped), adding the other clove of garlic (chopped) when the onions have cooked for a bit, until both are soft and smelling like Italy.
a) Sautee chorizo (roughly chopped) in pan (you don't need oil, it's oily enough!)
b) Combine onion, garlic and roasted tomatoes in a bowl and blend with a hand mixer, or use a food processor if you are super lucky and have one.
Add it all together, with the passata and cook it up!!!
WOAH. I forgot to add a step in about cooking the penne!! But I bet you were all smart cookies and made it anyway, right??? Or, if you didn't, just pretend you did it on purpose so that you could let all the flavours of the sauce meld together while you cooked up the penne. That's what I do...
Serve with some freshly chopped basil and grated GOUDA, and enjoy!!!
NOTE-- you could totally eat this without the chorizo and it would still be tasty, and maybe a bit lighter!
