MARIO BATALI’S SPAGHETTI

 

with Fresh Tomatoes, Chorizo, and Basil

 

PREP: 5 MIN  

TOTAL: 25 MIN

CALORIES: 498

 

TOOLS: Large Pot, Strainer, Large Pan

 

INGREDIENTS(2 Person/4 Person= Garlic(½ Clove/1 Clove), Basil(½ oz/½ oz), Jalapeno(1/1), Heirloom Grape Tomatoes(4 oz/8 oz), Spaghetti(6 oz/12 oz), Fresh Chorizo(¼ Cup/½ Cup), Parmesan Cheese(¼ Cup,¼ Cup), Olive Oil(5½ TBSP/11 TBSP)

 

STEPS:

ONE: PREP

Wash and dry all produce. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Thinly slice ½ clove garlic(use the rest as you like). Pick basil leaves from stems. Roughly chop leaves and stems, keeping them separate. Thinly slice jalapeño until you have about 2 tsp, removing ribs and seeds for less heat. Halve tomatoes.

 

TWO: COOK PASTA

Once water is boiling, add spaghetti to pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, about 9-11 minutes. Reserve a few big splashes of pasta cooking water, then drain.

 

THREE: COOK CHORIZO

While pasta cooks, heat 1½ TBSP olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add garlic, basil stems, and ¼ cup chorizo(about 1/3 of the package), breaking up meat into pieces. Cook, stirring, until chorizo is browned, 3-4 minutes. Add jalapeño (to taste) and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

 

FOUR: COOK TOMATOES AND ADD PASTA

Add tomatoes to pan. Cook until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and paper. Add drained spaghetti to pan along with a splash of pasta cooking water. TIP: Add just enough pasta cooking water to loosen things up—the starches will help everything adhere to the noodles and give the dish a beautiful consistency.

 

FIVE: TOSS PASTA

Toss everything in pan until evenly combined and spaghetti is coated, about 1 minute. Remove

from heat. Add basil leaves and parmesan (reserving a little of each for garnish) and toss until

well-combined and cheese has melted slightly.

 

SIX: PLATE AND SERVE

Divide pasta between plates. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil, then garnish with reserved basil

leaves and parmesan and serve.
