Chorizo and garlic
Finely chop the chorizo. Place a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil, chorizo, and thinly sliced garlic. Optionally add a pinch of smoked paprika. Cook for about 3 - 5 minutes or until nice and golden brown. Stir occasionally.TipIf you don't have Chorizo at home or you don't like it, you can use any other spicy sausage that you like, or even bacon or ham.
Cook the pasta
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to the packet instructions or until cooked al dente.
Add the peas
Transfer half of the chorizo to a plate. Add diced onion and parsley to the pan. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes. Add frozen peas, white wine and 50 ml (3 tbsp) water. Cover with a lid and cook for 5 minutes.
Pasta and Sauce
Add al dente cooked pasta, reserved pasta water (60 ml or 4 tbsp) and freshly grated parmesan cheese. Toss well to get a nice, silky pea pasta dish. Check the seasoning and if needed, season with black pepper and salt.TipDepending on the type of pasta you choose, you will need to add a bit more water (up to 100 ml or 6 tbsp).
Divide the pasta between two plates. Sprinkle with the rest of the chorizo. Drizzle with some freshly squeezed lemon juice and sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan cheese. Optionally sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley. Serve as soon as possible. Enjoy.
