If you like your carbonara with a little warmth, you will love this one. It has chorizo and chilli peppers to give it a nice “kick” and a creamy sauce & mushrooms to cool it down a little.

This take on the classic carbonara, is quick and easy to cook and tasty too. Don’t overcook your chorizo, just make sure it’s golden and moist still.
