Easy one pot pasta

Sometimes I just don’t have the energy to sit in the kitchen and cook for hours. Sometimes I just don’t have the time to do that. Thank God for one pot pasta recipes! This is my favorite. I simply love the taste of chorizo! I could eat it all day every day 🙂 This recipe is super easy, 5 minutes preparation, 7-8 minutes cooking and You’re done! 15 minutes dinner for the whole family? Yes sir! 🙂
