Description

One of the things I really miss is creamy pasta sauces, the other day I was out for dinner and had food envy over my friend’s creamy tomato chorizo pasta. This is my gluten and dairy free version of the dish, just be careful and check your chorizo doesn’t contain milk – some do and some don’t. It didn’t photograph very well, anything baked in a big dish always tastes amazing and photographs poorly!

Enjoy!
