    Chorizo sausage jumpstarts the taste of this pasta and bean salad. If you can't find chorizo, use spicy Italian sausage. Recipe by David Joachim, "Relish Entertaining," September 2006.

      Oh yum! I had to make two changes, one for geographical reasons and one for religious ones. Even though chorizo is available here, it's a lot easier to get merguez, which I guess could be called Moroccan chorizo. Nice and spicy. The other change I made was just to leave out the queso fresco, I don't mix dairy with meat. This was really delicious! Thanks!
