I got this recipe from a cookbook called ‘Zest’. My friend Kathy gave it to me as a present; it includes 62 recipes from some of the top restaurants in Ireland. The recipes are lovely, ideal if you want to get some ideas for a party or looking to impress someone. This recipe is quick and easy to make. It’s quite rich, not great for the waistline but hey you gotta indulge sometimes.

Serves 4


For the sauce:

Olive oil, for frying

100g chorizo sausage

2 red peppers, roasted, peeled, seeded and thinly sliced

450ml cream

For the pasta

2 tablespoons pesto

250g pappardelle pasta

Knob of butter

200g Boilie cow’s milk cheese

Salt and pepper


For the sauce

  1. Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan. Saute the chorizo sausage and the red peppers.
  2. Add the cream and pesto to the pan and reduce to thicken. Season with salt and pepper.

 For the pasta

  1. Cook the pasta in a large saucepan in boiling water with a knob of butter melted in the water.
  2. Do not overcook the pasta. When there is just a little ‘chew’ on the pasta, it is cooked enough- check the package for details.
  3. Drain the pasta and mix with the sauce from the pan.
  4. Drain the oil from the Boilie cheese, and add the cheese to the pasta mix. Stir Gently.

To serve

  1. Serve the pasta in a large warmed bowl in the centre of the table, with side dishes of green salad and garlic bread. Set a warm plate at each plate setting and allow your guest to help themselves.
