Spicy Chorizo and Leftover Pork Pasta

This pasta dish is a great way to use up leftover roast pork. You can also use leftover roast beef in this recipe, and the spiciness of the chorizo and paprika goes well with a nice glass of Rioja.

You Will Need: (Serves 2 Spicy Chorizo and Leftover Pork Pasta)

  • Leftover pork, diced
  • A handful of Chorizo, diced
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 Carton of Passata
  • 1 tbsp Creme Fraiche
  • 70g Pasta per person (Penne works best)
  • Optional: 1 glug of red wine (if open), 1 tsp Chilli Flakes

Spicy Chorizo and Leftover Pork Pasta


Begin by frying the chorizo in a non-stick saucepan (no oil needed).

Once the chorizo has bled the lovely red oil into the pan, fry your onions and continue to stir for around 4 mins, until the onions have softened and are just beginning to brown.

Fry the garlic and the paprika next, and then add the diced pork, and stir for a further couple of minutes.

To the pan, add your passata sauce and a tbsp of creme fraiche (and wine if using) and gently simmer for around 10 mins to enhance the flavour.

Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook your pasta for 10 mins until al dente.

Saving a mug of the starchy pasta water, drain the pasta.

Stir the pasta into the sauce and slowly add a few tbsp of water at a time. This loosens the sauce up a bit and creates a real Italian flavour.

Serve with chopped basil and cheese.
