Angel Hair Pasta With Chorizo and Mushrooms

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 45 mins

A yummy pasta dish that is started on the cooktop and finished in the oven. The house will smell divine! The chorizo I use is a dry sausage available here tinged with lots of paprika. It is already cured and can, in fact, be eaten out of hand, much like salami.

Hi everyone! I don't eat meat, and I found a product called Soyrizo the other day, but had no idea what to do with it. I tried it in this recipe last night, and my husband and I both say it's a keeper! I cut the recipe in half, and just be warned-it makes a lot! But we now have some delectable leftovers!
If you use the Soyrizo, it has to be cooked first. I also sprinkled a little parmesan cheese on top. It just seemed like the thing to do.
We had a salad, and a loaf of homemade crust Cuban bread; need I say more! And yes-the house did smell wonderful!
Thank you for sharing this recipe!

WONDERFUL!!! I am portuguese, so chorizo is one of my favorite meat sausages! I used the hot variation (available in sweet as well) - The only changes I made were to use fresh mushrooms and roma tomatoes. I will make this again!!

This was excellent!! I didn't have chorizo sausages and instead used sweet Italian sausages. I also subbed diced yellow onion for the green onions. The pasta had just the right amount of spicy flavor, and still had a creamy texture (under the crispy "crust"). This was easy and prepared with items I usually have in my pantry and fridge. I think it would be great at a casual dinner party or even just a weeknight dinner. Hubby told me not to loose track of this recipe.
