Today we'll be travelling to Spain...lol, where I'll be teaching you guys how I make my chorizo pasta. I love this recipe particularly because its super cheap and easy to make. I remember in my first year of university, when cash wasn't flowing as much as I wanted it to, this meal was my go to and it went a long way, especially for meal preps during busy times. All the ingredients can be purchased at your local store.

To prepare Chorizo and Tomato Pasta, you'll need the following.
300g of penne
0.5kg of chicken portions
1 large onion
2 teaspoons of sunflower oil
100g chorizo (skin removed and cut into chunks)
2 cans of chopped tomatoes
1 teaspoon of salt (this can be more or less depending on your taste)
2 knorr cube (double-pack)
2 teaspoons of thyme
2 teaspoons of garlic powder
2 teaspoons of chilli powder
1 teaspoon of curry powder
Add the spices to a small bowl and mix well (1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1 knorr cube, 1 teaspoon of curry powder, 1 teaspoon of thyme, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of chilli powder and two drops of sunflower oil).
Add the marinade to the chicken and mix well
Place on a foil tray and bake for 20 minutes at 200 degrees
In a medium sized pot, boil the pasta for 15-20, depending on how soft you want it. When done, drain the water and set aside.
In another pan, add a tablespoon of sunflower oil to a pan. When hot, add onions and fry for one minute. Add 2 cans of chopped tomatoes and the sliced chorizo to the fried onions and boil for 5 minutes.
Add the spices (1/2 teaspoon of salt, 2 knorr cube, 1 teaspoon of thyme, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of chilli powder and 1 teaspoon of curry powder) and leave to simmer for a minute.
Add the boiled pasta to the sauce and leave to cook for 2 minutes.
