MOSQUITO: Huh… actually, yeah I’m kind of curious if he brought Stripe with him too?

MOSQUITO: He’s been known to freak out so much that he forgets stuff, so I wouldn’t put it past him I guess.

Orecchiette with Chorizo Gravy

Submitted by cookingwithleftovers

It took me until the last mystery box to discover that not using every ingredient in the box was the way to go. The ‘little ear’ pasta is my favorite kind, so that is the star of this dish, mixed with creamy, thick, spicy, earthy gravy sauce.. Cozy comfort food.

Ingredients:
2 ½ cups dry orecchiette pasta, cooked
1 ½ cups reserved pasta water
4 pads of butter
1 tablespoon of flour
2 chorizo sausage links
2 big sticks rosemary (about 2 tablespoons, chopped), divided
asparagus stalks and ½ lemon
tomato garnish

Cook the pasta al dente with about ½ tablespoon rosemary in the boiling water, and reserve the cooking liquid. Squeeze the chorizo out of the casings and into a hot pan. Cook until crispy.

Remove ¾ of the chorizo from the pan; add butter and flour. Cook on low heat for 5 minutes until combined, then add the pasta water slowly- a little at a time- mixing into the flour and cooking on low heat until gravy-like. Add in the remaining rosemary and season well with salt and pepper. After another 5 minutes or so, fold in the chorizo.

Cook the asparagus with the lemon in the oven- 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.

In a bowl, add a big spoonful of pasta, a big spoonful of chorizo gravy, a few tomato quarters as a garnish, and top with some asparagus.

Just plan to take a nap afterwards..
