Chorizo and Thyme Pasta

Happy Sunday Folks!

Sunday is always a day of rest for most people, but for me it allows me to get the creative juices flowing and use up left over ingredients in the fridge.

I spotted a few slices of Chorizo, normally used on higher fat meals but a subtle touch of it can transform a meal with that sharp flavour.
