What’s not to love about the Spanish Chorizo? Its rich and smoky flavor makes it one of our favorite sausage/cured meats available. We’ve also wanted to add it in a dish, so we’ve chosen some pasta. We’ve also added some cherry tomatoes, garlic, chili, and we’ve served the pasta with pecan nuts and parsley.
