Method

Step 1

Preparation: Preheat the oven to 200°C. Prepare all ingredients as indicated above. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil for use in Step 1.

Step 2

Penne:Once your water in your large saucepan has come to the boil cook your penne pasta for 10-12 minutes until "al dente" - tender with a slight bite. Drain through a colander and reserve for later

Step 3

Lemon: Using the fine side of a box grater, grate the peel of the lemon to create zest. Set aside.

Step 4

Tomatoes: Place the tomatoes on a tin foil-lined baking tray, rub the rosemary leaves between your hands and place them on the tray. Add the crushed garlic cloves, a drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper. Place in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes until the tomatoes are golden and cooked. Remove from the oven, peel the roasted garlic and chop finely.

Step 5

Chorizo mix: Place a large frying pan on medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the onion and chorizo with a little salt and cook for 5 minutes. Add the roast tomatoes, chopped garlic, water (see quantity above for the chorizo mix), the chilli (optional), sundried tomatoes and olives. Cook for about 3 minutes until the sauce thickens. Add the lemon zest and season with salt and pepper, then add the penne and mix through. Mix in the parsley and basil.

Step 6

Serve in a bowl, topped with the hard cheese shavings and a drizzle of olive oil.
