Directions:

1

According to this recipe the whole cooking process should take 5 minutes but that certainly wasn't the case for me. The tomatoes took longer to prepare however they were worth it.

2

Boil the kettle and then pour boiling water over the tomatoes, cover and leave for one minute.

3

Then drain and remove the skins (they literally fall off) and seeds, and chop into small pieces. This was an extremely messy process! Also slice the garlic.

4

Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta according to the packet's instructions (mine took 10 minutes).

5

While the pasta is cooking, fry the garlic in a tablespoon of olive oil for a couple of minutes and then add the tomatoes, chorizo and season.

6

If necessary, add another tablespoon of olive oil (I did) and then cook gently for around 8 minutes.

7

Drain the pasta and mix together with the tomato and chorizo sauce.

8

Stir in half the goat's cheese until it is mostly melted.

9

Finally serve with the remaining goat's cheese and a sprinkling of chives (or basil).

This was delicious - Arabella and I both adored it and ate every last morsel. We will be adding this to our regular cook list. It was so simple yet so tasty. You could mix it up by using bacon instead of chorizo or using mozzarella or blue cheese instead of goat's cheese. We sent a picture of it to Pascal who is in France and he had serious food envy….not surprising though!!

We eat a lot of goat's cheese in our house, Arabella likes to eat slices of it as her afternoon snack and I reckon I could get her to eat most things as long as it was covered in goat's cheese. Therefore when I found a recipe for a new goat's cheese pasta dish, I had to try it out. This is from the waitrose magazine and is perfect to cook now as squash is in season. It took around ..

My daughter Arabella isn't a fussy eater but she detests aubergines - I just don't get it as I absolutely love them! Anyway as she was at her father's for the weekend, I decided it would be the perfect time to cook this pasta recipe. I had cooked it previously about 5 years ago so it was definitely time to give it another go. It took about 35 minutes and was really easy.

Cheap and easy mac and cheese for all the family Mac and cheese is my all time favourite dish - I could eat it every week (or every day)….although that probably wouldn't be the smartest decision health wise considering the amount of cheese I put in. However I do like to cook it every so often as a treat. My favourite recipe is this mac and cheese with lardons, leeks and spinach ..
