    FolkDiva's Note:

    Macaroni en Salsa de Tomate con Chorizo..found on "" and submitted for ZWT 5. Recipe Note: Spanish Chorizo is very different than Mexican or Caribbean chorizo. Spanish chorizo is a firm, dry sausage where most Mexican chorizo is fresh and soft, not cured sausage. It also has different spices than Spanish Chorizo, so it is not a good substitute for this recipe. If you need a substitute, use Portuguese Linguica sausage, which is very similar to Spanish Chorizo and should be easy to find in your local supermarket.

    Serves: 4


    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Peel and chop the onion into 1/4-inch chunks. Peel and chop garlic. Remove the seeds and veins from the pepper and chop. Cut chorizo into round slices about 1/4-inch thick.
    2. 2
      Pour about half of the olive oil into a large frying pan and heat on medium. Once hot enough, sauté the chorizo slices, pepper, onion and garlic in the pan. Stir often. If necessary, add more olive oil to pan.
    3. 3
      Once the onions are translucent, add the can of crushed tomatoes. Sprinkle in the paprika. Stir and cook on medium-low for 10 minutes, careful not to burn the sauce.
    4. 4
      While the sauce is simmering, bring water to a rolling boil for pasta in a large pot. Add pasta and cook until al dente – about 10 minutes. Drain pasta.
    5. 5
      To serve, add pasta to frying pan and mix together with sauce. If you prefer, plate the pasta, then add sauce on top.

      We really loved this recipe! We substituted the Spanish chorizo with Mexican chorizo and used a full pound of fettuccine (in hind sight 3/4 of the box would have been better), I would also have prefered a full pepper as oposed to half. I will certainly make this again. Thanks for the post!!!

      I did this recipe but didn't add as much papricka, a whole red pepper, and made 1/4 inch. patties chorizo and we loved it. The next day for left overs I added 1bag of shredded motzarella and it was a hit dish for the whole family. Kids loved it and next time I will try the portuguese linguica to compare and let you guys know how it turns out!! Thankx!! :)

      Made for 1~2~3 Hits. This is a wonderful dish. I wish that I could have used Linguica in this, but it's not available anywhere around here (at least not that I know of) so I used Chorizo (Mexican Sausage) (about 12 ounces) and fried it up like hamburger. Other than that everything was done exactly as written. We all loved it and DD said that I should most definitely make this again. Thanks for posting this FolkDiva!
