Gluten and Dairy Free Chorizo, Mushroom & Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Hello

Christmas and New Year festivities seems like a distant memory now.  I’ve had a good first week back at work and I’m starting to think about new ideas and recipes for the website for 2018.

I don’t really set any New Year resolutions but it is a good time of year to take stock of where things are and get re-energised for the next 12 months.

Today’s recipe is for very tasty pasta dish loaded with flavours from the chorizo and sun dried tomatoes.  I love cooking with chorizo, it just makes everything taste so much better but make sure you check the ingredients as some chorizo has milk in.

Enjoy!
