Pork Chorizo Pasta Bake


Prep = 10mins

Cook = 25mins

Serves 4-6ppl



  • 500g pork mince
  • 3 fresh chorizo sausages
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 stick celery
  • 1 red onion
  • ½ tsp dried herbs
  • 300g cooked pasta – I used malfada corta but rigatoni, fusilli and orecchiette will also work
  • 500g passata
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 fresh mozzarella
  • ½ cup shredded pizza cheese/4 cheese mix
  • ½ cup grated parmesan



  1. Blend the vegetables and garlic together in a food processor
  2. Remove the sausages from the casing and cook in a casserole dish with the pork for approx. 4 mins
  3. Add vegetables and herbs and cook for a further 2-3 mins
  4. Next, add tomato paste and cook for 1 min
  5. Add passata and cook for 2-3 mins or until warm through
  6. Remove from the heat and stir in the cooked pasta
  7. Top with fresh mozzarella and other cheeses
  8. Bake @ 180c for 10-15mins or until cheese has melted



  • You can prepare this in advance and just cook in the oven when ready – if doing this way then cover the pasta bake and cook for 10mins and then cook for a further 10mins uncovered
  • you can freeze leftover pasta bake - just reheat using the same method above
  • can’t get fresh chorizo then substitute with another spicy sausage or a regular pork sausage and add some smoked paprika and a little chilli to the dish
