Chorizo Bean Pasta

This is the first of the "If It's" series of recipes, which basically stands for "If it's in the fridge it's in the dish!". More often than not you cannot beat eat up night. You know, the last night of the holiday when everything gets eaten up before the journey home the next day. Some unusual but wonderful creations are conjoured up in caravans up and down the country, and sometimes they can be the most delicious meals of the trip. We are no exception so starting us off is this dish created on the Isle of Wight, which turned out very tasty indeed, even if it doesn't look like it!


1/2 Chorizo ring
1/2 Green pepper
1/2 Tin of tomato soup
1/2 Tin of beans and sausages
1/2 Carrot
1/2 Lemon, juiced
1/2 Lettuce
1/4 Broccoli
1x Garlic clove
2x Celery sticks
1x Stock cube
1tsp English mustard
Splash red wine vinegar
Glass of water
Handful of pasta
Pinch of mace
Handful of Greek basil, leaves separated from the stalks
Nice oil
Sea salt if you have it


1. Chop everything up then start by sweating off the chorizo in a wok.
2. When the chorizo starts to release its oil add the pepper, carrot, celery and garlic. Stir fry for a minute or two.
3. Now in goes everything else except the basil leaves and lettuce. Stir until cooked.
4. Plate up! Serve topped with the basil leaves, next to the lettuce dressed in oil and a bit of sea salt.
