Ingredients

  • 240g dry weight pasta (I used Fusilli bucati)

Directions

  • Dice the red onion and add to a large roasting tray with the tomatoes and diced chorizo.
  • Drizzle over the olive oil and sprinkle in the salt, pepper, garlic granules and mixed herbs.
  • Stir to combine and then make a well in the middle of the tray.
  • Spoon in the mascarpone in the middle of the ingredients.
  • Place in the oven at fan 180°C / 400°F for 25 mins.
  • 10 mins before that’s cooked, boil your pasta in salted water for about 8 mins and then drain.
