Fried Spaghetti And Chorizo

  • Serves 3-4
Fried Spaghetti And Chorizo

Hot and spicy; this is a great idea to use up leftover spaghetti.


  • 200 grams dried pasta (eg. trenette)
  • boiling salted water
  • 2 chunky chorizo sausages
  • 1 onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 tblsp minced fresh garlic
  • 1 chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 tblsp olive oil
  • 6-8 leaves sage, finely chopped
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to season
  • olive oil for pan-frying

Suggested garnishes

  • chopped fresh or sliced sundried tomatoes
  • olives, any style
  • capers
  • sage leaves
  • extra grated parmesan cheese (optional)


  1. Cook the pasta in boiling, salted water for 10-12 minutes or until al-dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. Finely dice the chorizo sausage and cook in a hot frying pan with the onion, garlic and chilli in the 2 tblsp olive oil until the sausage and onion are well cooked but not burnt.
  3. In a large bowl toss together the spaghetti, chorizo mix, sage leaves, parmesan cheese and a good seasoning of salt and pepper.
  4. Coat the base of a frying pan with oil. Add 1/4 of the pasta mix and cook for around 3-4 minutes until the base is brown and beginning to crispen. Turn, or more flamboyantly, flip the spaghetti pancake over, and cook a further 1-2 minutes. Repeat three times, using remaining pasta mix.
  5. Serve hot topped with a mix of the suggested garnishes.
