Recipe: Spanish Tortellini

A rather student-y meal I suppose, but needs must as the devil drives, and at the moment the desire to eat tasty gourmet "chef-y" meals every night goes slightly against my university budget. Also where does the time go? with already 6 weeks into my second year of University I have so much work and reading to do, that I can't really spend hours preparing meals how I would like to. I do believe though that it entirely possible for someone on a low budget or someone that doesn't have too much time on their hands to produce delicious meals for themselves. This recipe uses one of my regular cheap staples: pre-made tortellini. I used sundried tomato and mozzarella tortellini from sainsburys this time, but most tortellini/ravioli flavours work in this dish. I used some of that Bath Pig Chorizo again as well- I know i'll be doing work experience with them in the Spring, but without bias I can honestly say it is the nicest cooking chorizo i've ever tasted. Great texture too.

Spanish Tortellini (serves 1)

150g any type shop bought tortellini/ ravioli
1 tbsp olive oil
50g raw chorizo, diced
1 garlic clove
150g cherry tomatoes, halved
Large handful fresh parsley, finely chopped
¼ tsp smoked paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
Grated manchego or parmesan for garnish.

1. Cook the tortellini according to the packet instructions. Meanwhile, in another pan, fry the chorizo and garlic in the olive oil for 3 minutes. Add the cherry tomatoes, parsley and smoked paprika and cook for a further 2 minutes.
2. Add the cooked tortellini to the chorizo and tomatoes. Stir well to combine all the ingredients, and serve with some grated manche
