I love pasta, I like the taste of chorizo and yesterday, I was craving for a canned tuna. I gathered all the ingredients available at home and decided to cook a Tuna Pesto Pasta with a twist! That is.. with King Sue Chorizo Bilbao. The Chorizo Bilbao complemented the tuna pesto and added flavor to the dish.
Here's what you will need:
- 500g spaghetti
- 1 King Sue Chorizo Bilbao, chopped
- 2 cans tuna flakes in oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
- 1 tbs basil leaves, chopped
- 2 medium size bell pepper, chopped
- spring onion
- salt and pepper
How to prepare:
Step 1. Cook pasta in boiling water with salt and pepper until al dente. Drain.
Step 2. In a large frying pan over medium heat, saute garlic and onion in olive oil. Add the chorizo Bilbao, bell pepper and basil leaves.
Step 3. After about 2 minutes, add the tuna flakes with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Heat gently for another 2 minutes then toss the spring onion.
Step 4. Add the cooked pasta and mix thoroughly.
Step 5. Sprinkle with cheese.
Serve with garlic bread or crackers. Enjoy! =)
