Macadamia Crusted Chorizo Pasta


Ingredients: (for 2 persons)
250g spaghetti
70g macadamia nuts
100g chorizo
70g cherry tomatoes
2 cloves garlic, grated
50g crumbled fetta cheese
olive oil
black pepper

  • In a hand blender, chop macadamia nuts coarsely
  • Cut chorizo into small cubes or you can blend it coarsely in a blender.
  • Heat about 1/2 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan, put in chorizo, macadamia, salt and black pepper. Fry them until crispy.  Set aside in the pan.
  • Meanwhile, place cherry tomatoes into a tray. Drizzle some olive oil over them and season with salt and black pepper.  Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for about 20 minutes or until blistered and starting to burst.  Remove from oven.
  • Cook spaghetti until al dente
  • Toss the hot spaghetti into the chorizo and macadamia mixture.  Add in roasted tomatoes and fetta cheese which will melt slightly.  Season with more black pepper. Drizzle with a little olive oil and serve hot.
