This spicy chorizo and prawn pasta brings spaghetti, warming chorizo and rich cherry tomatoes together to make one mouth-watering dish.

The Spanish flavours of the prawn and chorizo dish will warm you through. This dish is the perfect way to use up leftover prawns and can be ready in just 30 mins and serves 4 people. Any leftovers can be kept in the fridge for up 2 days, but we'd recommend eating this dish fresh as the prawns are best eaten straight away.

  • 300g spaghetti
  • 120g chorizo pieces
