Chorizo and Goats Cheese Pasta Bake

Preparation time: 5mins Cooking time: 30mins Serves: 4


My sister's recipe. Very quick and easy to make. Delicious with a side salad.


  • 1 pack sliced chorizo (I use tesco brand)
  • 1 tub goats cheese (I use tesco french goats cheese)
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 onion chopped
  • handful of mushrooms chopped (optional)
  • 1 jar passata (I use roma passata)
  • 250g penne/fussili pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt + pepper to taste


  1. Cook the pasta
  2. In a frying pan, fry onion and garlic in olive oil until soft
  3. Chop up the chorizo into strips, and add to frying pan with chopped mushrooms, fry until mushrooms are cooked
  4. Add the jar of passata and mix well add salt and pepper to the sauce to taste (not too much salt as the chorizo is already quite salty)
  5. In a large oven dish, throw in the cooked pasta, cover with the passata sauce, then crumble in half the goats cheese
  6. Mix a little (but don’t mix so much that the goats cheese ‘dissolves’ it should remain in chunks)
  7. Add rest of goats cheese to top (it will brown nicely in the oven)
  8. Oven bake for 20 mins at about 180 degrees celcius
