Pasta and beans stew with chorizo
Pasta and beans stew. Yum! My family has been making this dish for as long as I can remember. The inspiration comes from the Italian dish called Pasta e fagioli. We used to cook it with sausages or smoked ribs, but a few years ago we discovered Chorizo and since then we only cook it with chorizo (it's kind of hard to resist :) This is one of our favorite, comforting go to midweek dishes, since it's so easy and pretty quick to make. We usually cook the beans one day in advance and then finish the dish later. A simple dish that offers a lot of flavor, comfort and it's quick to make.

Lets get cooking!

ONLY A FEW MOMENTS SPENT IN THE KITCHEN AND YOU WILL HAVE THIS FANTASTIC DISH IN FRONT OF YOU.

    Heat the olive oil in a heavy based pan over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, chopped garlic, thinly sliced pancetta, sweet paprika powder, sage and bay leaf. Fry for about 10 minutes, or until softened. Stir regularly.

    Add the cooked beans, 650g (2 and 3/4 cups) of reserved bean broth or water and pasta. Bring to the boil, then lower the temperature and cook for about 25 minut or until the pasta has absorbed some of the liquid and is tender. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly before serving.

  • serve

    Meanwhile fry thin slices of chorizo in a frying pan over high heat with a drizzle of olive oil for about 5 minute or until golden and crispy outside. To serve, spoon the pasta and beans stew into two serving bowls. Add the chorizo Season to taste with freshly ground black pepper and salt. Optionally add a generous spoon of sour creme and drizzle a splash of olive oil over each serving.
