Recipe Ingredients for RD's Chorizo, Fennel and Tomato Penne

1 fennel bulb, finely diced, about 5mm
1 small onion, finely diced, about 5mm
100 g chorizo sausage, sliced on the diagonal
1 clove garlic, chopped fine,
2 tsps tomato paste
400 g crushed tomatoes
2 tsps olive oil
2 tsps fennel seeds
150 g penne rigate
1 tbsp parmesan cheese, grated

Recipe Directions for RD's Chorizo, Fennel and Tomato Penne

  1. Peel and dice the onion finely and put aside. Slice the fennel and then dice finely to match the same sizes as the onions. Slice the chorizo sausage on the angle making elongated slices.

  2. Place a fry pan over a medium heat and add the oil, wait for it to get hot but not smoking. Gently fry off the sausage slices until they begin to colour, on both sides, and then remove from the heat. Using a slotted spoon remove the sausages into a bowl.

  3. Cook the pasta until al dente or ?firm on the tooth? when bitten.

  4. Return the fry pan to the stove you cooked the sausages in, leaving the oil in the pan that came out during the cooking process, on a medium heat. Add the onion and fennel mixture, and the fennel seeds. Cook gently for 5 minutes stirring the mixture to cook evenly. Add the chopped tomatoes, any tomato juice and the tomato paste. Return the sausage to the pan and cook for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and turn off the heat.

  5. By now your pasta should be cooked. Place a colander into the sink and tip the pot of cooked pasta into the colander. Let the pasta drain well. Take the sauce and place into the pasta pot, tip the pasta back in and mix together turning over the pasta to coat.

  6. Serve into 2 bowls, top with parmesan.
