Chorizo Alla Vodka

Warren Mendes

Ingredients:

Serves: 4

  • 200g good quality chorizo,
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped (or 2 large eschallot)
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½ tsp chilli flakes
  • 130g tube good quality tomato paste
  • ½ cup grated parmesan, plus extra to serve
  • ½ cup vodka
  • 200ml pouring cream
  • 400g dried calamarata pasta or similar short pasta

Method:

  1. Remove the skins from the chorizo and finely chop the filling. Add to a deep frypan with the oil then place over medium heat. Once the chorizo starts to sizzle, cook for 2-3 minutes until the fat has started to render then add the onion and cook for a further 3-4 minutes to soften.
  2. Add the garlic and chilli and cook for 30 seconds then add the tomato paste and cook for 3-4 minutes to cook out.
  3. Add the vodka and cream and cook for 2 minutes, stirring until smooth.
  4. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in salted boiling water until al dente. Drain the pasta, reserving ½ cup cooking liquid then add the pasta to the vodka sauce along with the cooking liquid.
  5. Add parmesan and season to taste. Serve topped with a little extra parmesan
