One-pots are fantastic in the winter when its dark and you've been at work all day - chuck all the ingredients in one pan and leave it to cook. I came up with this recipe one night when i got home from work and couldn't be bothered to go shopping so it was made up with whatever was in the fridge and the cupboard at the time. Its a cross between a soup and a stew - you eat it out of a bowl with a spoon (nothing better if you ask me) and the pasta makes it nice and filling.
This recipe makes 3 bowls of stew but you can always add a bit more stock/meat to make it go a bit further. To make this delicious warming one-pot you will need the following:
And here's how to make it:
- In a large pan, gently fry the pancetta, chorizo, onion and garlic until the onions are softened and the chorizo has released its oils. Top tip: when cooking your onions, add some salt to stop them from burning and going brown.
2. Once cooked add the tomatoes, sundried tomato paste, a squirt of ketchup, a splash of Worcestershire sauce, turmeric, chili and a bit of salt and pepper for seasoning. Give it all a stir and simmer on a low heat for a further 5 minutes to let the flavour develop.
