      I'm not rating as I want to be fair to the recipe since I've never cooked with Chorizo before. My chorizo wasn't marked hot or extra hot, but we found the recipe to be over-spiced. It went together easily, the sauce was enough for the pasta coating it beautifully & the chicken was tender and moist. DH wants to try it again leaving out the chili pepper. If we find it too hot again, I'll reduce the amount of chorizo used. I only salted the pasta water and on the chicken as it browned. I made my own tomato basil pesto and it did not call for seasoning. The completed dish didn't need additional seasoning. I served with a green salad filled with summer veggies.
