Servings: 2


  • 300 g penne
  • 1 chorizo thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 1 chili finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 500 g canned tomatoes chopped
  • 100 g roasted peppers roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • salt to taste
  • parmesan for serving


  • Heat up a large pan over medium heat and add the sliced chorizo. Cook for 3-5 minutes until it darkens slightly and releases its fat.
  • Add the onion and the garlic and cook for another 5 minutes. No need to add any extra oil, since the chorizo takes care of that.
  • Add the chili and the tomato paste and cook for 5 minutes. Deglaze with the white wine.
  • Add the canned tomatoes, the sugar, the thyme and some salt to taste. Turn down the heat and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile cook the pasta according to package.
  • Stir the roasted peppers into the sauce and finally add the pasta. Stir well and serve immediately with some parmesan cheese.


As always: Know your chilis and add them according to your taste!
