Quick tagliatelle in a prawn, chorizo, leek and white wine sauce

It is the party season. It is also weirdly enough a time of year when people tend to stress about the food side of the party. My motto for this is go for tried and tested recipes. They don’t have to be complicated either. Simple hearty dishes that you can rustle-up in minutes is what I go for. So here’s one that is easy and delicious my “Quick tagliatelle in a prawn, chorizo, leek and white wine sauce ”

Ingredients:

500 g of fresh prawns preferably

100 g of chorizo cut into cubes

one leek (chopped finely)

One glass of white wine

One tbsp of mascarpone

Half a glass of double cream

Parsley

Method:

Boil a pan of water for your tagliatelle, once boil add your pasta

Start by frying your prawns in a little bit of olive oil, when they start turning red take them off the pan and put them aside. Add the chorizo and leek to the pan, let it cook for about 3 minutes until the leeks have gone soft. At that point, add your wine. Let it boil for a minute and then add your mascarpone and the cream and let it simmer for 5 minutes.  Add your parsley and prawns, by now your tagliatelle should be cooked, add them to the sauce, sprinkle a bit more parsley on top.
