This recipe is a good example of how a few simple ingredients, combined correctly, can create delicious flavour. Strands of tagliatelle are coated in the oil released from gorgeous lightly fried chorizo. Next you add in a big whack of richness from cream cheese and freshness from chopped parsley. The end result - an easy, cheap meal for any night of the week.
Large pan of salted boiling water for the pasta
Large frying pan/wok for the chorizo
Spoons to stir
Something to bash the garlic with - I use the flat of a knife
Before you start, put a large pan of salted boiling water on the hob, drop in the tagliatelle and cook for 3 mins. Meanwhile, have the other ingredients ready. Put a large frying pan/wok on the hob, off the heat. After the pasta has had 3 mins, click here!
