I am inspired today to share with you this quick pasta dish. I suggest you make the sauce while the pasta boils then toss the hot noodles with the sauce and prepare for a delicious experience. This is surprisingly a very quick dish that can be cooked within 15 minutes. You won't have to wait for how long just to have a taste of this specialty that sizzles.

You will need:

200 grams spaghettini

2 tablespoons garlic, chopped

1 piece chorizo de Bilbao, cubed

8 pieces shrimp, shelled and deveined

1 teaspoon Spanish paprika

Salt and cayenne pepper to taste

3 tablespoons water from cooking pasta

1 tablespoon flat-leaf Italian parsley, chopped

Here’s how:

1) Cook spaghettini according to package directions. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce.

2) In a pan, heat olive oil and saute’ garlic until fragrant. Add chorizo and cook until crispy. Put in the shrimps and sauté until they turn pink. Add paprika and season with salt and cayenne pepper to taste.

3) Toss cooked and drained spaghettini with the sauce, adding 2 to 3 tablespoons pasta water to the mixture. Finish with a sprinkling of parsley.
