Tagliatelle with Chorizo, Cherry Tomatoes and Courgettes (Zucchini)

Course: Main Dish
Cuisine: Italian
Keyword: Food Recipes, Pasta, Pleasures


  • 500 grs Tagliatelle pasta
  • 4 medium Zucchini , cut in 3 mm slices (mandolin or knife)
  • 200 grs Hot Chorizo Sausage , cut in 2 mm thickness
  • 180 cup fresh Cherry Tomatoes
  • 50 grs Parmesan cheese
  • 5 litres cold Water
  • 3 tablespoons EVOO , (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
  • Sea Salt
  • freshly ground Black Pepper


  • In a Large pot bring water to a boil on high heat adding a generous amount of salt. Add the pasta, stirring occasionally so as not to stick and cook according to suggested time on the box of the pasta less 2 minutes. Reserve ½ cup of cooking water.
  • In the meantime, in a large, deep saucepan over medium heat pour 1 tablespoon of oil and toss in the chorizo sautéing until they get some colour. Reduce the heat to low and with a slotted spoon remove from the pan the chorizos to a plate.
  • While the pan is hot (increase heat) add the cherry to tomatoes, toss around for 3-4 minutes until the skin wrinkles but doesn’t burst. Season with salt and pepper. Take out the tomatoes to the same plate as the chorizos.
  • Again, while the pan is hot add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil and toss the zucchini in the pan. Don’t move them a lot as we want a nice sear and crust on them. Heat must be high, don’t overcrowd the pan as the zucchinis have a lot of moisture and we don’t want to ‘boil’ them but sauté them instead.
  • When ready, turn off the heat and return the chorizos and the tomatoes to the pan with the zucchini. Keep aside.
  • Strain the pasta and return to the saucepan with the chorizos, the tomatoes and the zucchini. On medium heat add half cup of the reserved pasta water, stir for a minute so as the pasta absorbs the sauce.
  • Season with pepper and serve in a deep bowl topping with the Parmesan cheese.
