Chorizo Pasta Supper in 10 minutes

‘What’s for Dinner Mom?’ a refrain that at times has me muffling expletives under my breath. Crazy days of exams & sports & socks, of unwashed floors & grimey bathrooms, sodden towels and mounting ironing piles not to mention the pile of admin on my office desk.

Chorizo Pasta Supper Dish

Crazy, crazy days and at the end of it all the request for dinner.  Left to my own devices on days like this I’d be quite happy with a toasted sandwich poshed up with cranberry sauce and accompanied by a mug of piping hot tea, that would just be heavenly.  But for the kids alas that wouldn’t be awarded the ‘dinner’ badge and I would be reminded that even though they’re not actually being starved by their mother they didn’t get a dinner.

    Very sensible approach. Thankfully, we are past that stage and now the adults in the house take care of their own mess (most of the time). Nice looking pasta.
    Best,
    Conor

      Thanks Conor. Just a few more years of kids growing, watering and feeding to be done and I’ll be through the gap and into the bliss of cooking what I want to eat, all for me!

    In the same 10 minutes you could give the chorizo a flash fry and release all the yummy oils and flavours and pour over the pasta. Another pan to clean I know ☺
