Fridge forage stew

This delish disaster came about after I had a massive fridge forage and cupboard clear out. I wanted to get rid of everything that I had. It’s a bit of a stew that bumped into a tagine that had an affair with a soup. Thick, rich and delicious. It’s super easy, just chuck everything in and let the spices worth their magic. You can mix up the pulses and pasta as you like. Enjoy.

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large casserole over a medium heat. Add the onion and carrot and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes until soft.
  2. Chuck the pepper and chorizo into the pan and mix well. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes until everything goes a little golden.
  3. Put the garlic, fennel, tomatoes and tomato puree, paprika, chilli, chickpeas, butter beans, pasta and stock to the pan. Mix well. Bring to the boil. Cover, reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 35-40 minutes or until the pasta has cooked and the sauce thickened. I love this really thick so leave the lid off for the last 10 minutes.
  4. Throw the parsley into the pan and mix well. Check the seasoning, adding salt to taste. Spoon the stew into bowls. Grate a little parmesan over each and tuck in.
