Recipe – Chorizo (Goa sausage) Pasta

What do you cook when a colleague asks you to bring a non-vegetarian dabba for his gatari? Especially when you have no time to shop and limited resources in the kitchen.

Cooking challenge of this kind excites me. So, today morning I walked in my kitchen. There was some penne pasta lying around and a packet of forgotten Goa sausages waved at me from the fridge. Does a Chorizo Pasta sound good? Absolutely. And, I also have a recipe for the Indiblogger’s Del Monte – Blog Your Way To Italy contest. The first prize is a trip to Italy and Ranveer Brar will judge the recipes, so of course I’ll give it a shot. You can know more about the Del Monte brand here.
