Angel Hair Pasta With Chorizo and Mushrooms
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!<br/>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.<br/>We had a salad, and a loaf of homemade crust Cuban bread; need I say more! And yes-the house did smell wonderful!<br/>Thank you for sharing this recipe!2Reply
I see everyone else is raving about this recipe, but I was rather disapointed. First I noticed it said to cook the garlic & onions on med-hi. This temp is way to high - it would burn the garlic in the 8 minutes it said to cook. So adjusted temp - fine. Then it said to just add chorizo with liquids - what about browning the chorizo? I ditched that part and browned the chorizo - great. I then added all liquids/spices then angel hair - looked pretty good until it took it out of the oven after 15 minutes or so of cooking time (as recipe indicated). The "casserole" was not bubbly at all, it was dry and crackly - the pasta was sticking together in clumps and there was no sauce - arggg! I suppose I might try it again or use another recipe. I don't think baking it is necessary and seems to eliminate the sauce - which I love!Reply
