Oh Chorizo, how I love thee!

You will need:

2 chorizo

1 family sized packet of gnocchi

fresh basil

1 jar of passata, found normally on the bottom shelf in supermarket where pasta sauces are.

parmesan flakes to garnish.



Slice the chorizo thinly and fry in a hot pan with some olive oil, once the ends start to curl (do not overcook or it will become hard to eat)

add the entire contents of the passata jar

Simmer for 15-20mins to allow the meat juices to permeate the sauce

To a pot of boiling water add the gnocchi with a teaspoon of salt

Once the all the gnocchi has risen to the top of the boiling water then drain and put straight back into the the hot pot

Add a knob of butter and store through the gnocchi so it doesn’t stick together

Add the chorizo and sauce and a large handful of roughly chopped fresh basil to the mixture and stir though
