Penne with chorizo & broccoli


400g penne
small head of broccoli broken into small florets
200g cooking chorizo diced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp fennel seed
200g low-fat cream cheese with garlic & herbs
parmesan and rocket leaves, to serve

Cook the penne following pack instructions, adding the broccoli for the final 3 mins. When cooked, drain, reserving a splash of the cooking water.

Meanwhile, fry the chorizo in a large dry frying pan until it starts to turn golden and release its oils. Add the garlic and fennel seeds, and cook for 1 min more. When the penne is cooked, tip it into the pan with the chorizo. Add the cream cheese, stir together until melted, adding a splash of the reserved cooking water so the sauce coats the pasta.

Serve in bowls, scattered with a few rocket leaves and some grated Parmesan, if you like.
