Penne with Saucí Romesco and Chorizo
Yield: 1 serving
Time: 15 minutes
Romesco isn’t normally a pasta sauce, but it packs a wallop of flavor so it makes a simple pasta jump out of the bowl! The chorizo and scallion garnish are a nod to the Catalonian roots of Romesco sauce.
At the farmer’s markets, before some people see my ‘recipe board’, they often ask ‘so, what is this, pasta sauce?’ I usually reply by steering them to the many dishes pictured– meats, veggies, eggs, seafood and more. But the truth is, Romesco is a fantastic pasta sauce too (see also the pizza recipe post…)
This is so simple, it’s a great one-person meal. In my case, the rest of the family had eaten, and I wanted to make up something quickly, and knew I wanted to shoot a pasta meal! Cooking the pasta is the most involved part of this meal.
