Chorizo and Garden Vegetable Pasta

Welcome again to what we eat Wednesday, it is a beautiful day in Cavan today and I am sharing an easy to throw together pasta dish which is tasty and full of veggie which I pulled from my own garden but you can also get in the local shop.

Chorizo and Garden Vegetable Pasta  – feeds 4 or 2 and 1 incredible hungry teenager 


  • Chorizo – Sliced or chopped
  • Half an Onion – chopped  
  • 2 cloves of crushed garlic
  • A handful of Cherry Tomatoes 
  • 2 Courgettes chopped 
  • Mushrooms 
  • And Pasta of your choice 
  • Olive oil 
  • Fresh Chopped Oregano – Optional

The How to Bit

  1.  Start cooking your pasta in a separate pot as you normally would – cook enough for 4.
  2. Add a drop of olive oil into a skillet and add your chopped onions and cook until golden.
  3. Add garlic and the chorizo into the onions and cook on a medium heat to release the oils in the chorizo. Add in the chopped courgettes and chopped cherry tomatoes and mushrooms and stir until all are cooked though. 
  4. Add chopped oregano and stir though to taste. 
  5. Once cooked, drain the pasta. 

Add the chorizo and vegetables to the pasta and stir well and serve with grated parmesan.  


Quick, tasty and ready in less than 20 minutes – handy for those days when you are in a rush. For more Easy Recipes check out my recipes HERE and you can follow my Recipe Pinterest Board HERE
