Chorizo Penne

Chorizo penne

I’m quite fond of fast and easy pasta dishes. The sauce can be made in the time the pasta takes to cook, so there is no excuse for a hot supper 🙂  I was going for spanish inspired flavors, as I had some chorizo lying around. To balance the salty flavor I included capers and sweet red pepper, for color some baby spinach.
