A family favourite

  • Added prawns and chorizo and it was delicious


  • My toddler is a big fan of pasta and I’ve been getting into capsicum flavoured things lately so this is something I’ll definitely be trying.
    Thank you so much for sharing.


  • Looks fabulous in the picture and ingredients look tastey


  • This looks and sounds delicious but I’d only add a small amount of the spice since we don’t like anything that is too spicy and it really doesn’t like me at all.


  • We’re not big on heat, but this pasta looks to have just enough spice for some great flavour.


  • Wow this looks yummy and tasty!
