|Here is the shoppinglist.|
Macarones with chorizo is a typical weekdays dish, very appreciated among the kids, and quite anti-crisis, the shoppinglist as follows:
500 gr Macarones (Macaroni)
1.5 kg Tomates maduros ( Ripe tomatoes)
1 Cebolla grande. ( Big onion)
2 Dientes de ajo. ( Cloves of garlic)
1 Zanahoria pequeña. (Small carrot)
300 gr Chorizo. (Chorizo sausage)
1 ch Sal. (Salt)
1 ch Oregano. (Oregano)
1ch Azucar. (Sugar)
100 gr Queso rallado. (Grated cheese)
3 or 4 cc Aceite oliva Virgen Extra (Virgen extra olive oil)
|Start to stir the onion, garlic and carrot.|
After 30 min. add the salt, the sugar and the oregano. I use some tagatesse instead of sugar , got used to it during the time I dieted. ( In healt food shops) If you like , give it a go in the food processor again, personally I like it as it comes out, a litte "rustic". I use to buy a little cured and spicy chorizo, so I just peel it , cut it in thin slices and let it stir in the tomato sauce for another 5 min. .If you prefere the fresh chorizo, cut it in a little thicker slices and let it cook the last 10 min. in the tomato sauce, or you can fry it for a couple of minutes, and drain the fat away before you add it to the tomato sauce..
|The best chorizo from the local butcher.|
Sometimes I make 3 or 4 kilos of tomatoes, and it can stay in the fridge for 4-5 days, and you can also freeze it. Use it with boiled rice, and a fried egg, tasty and quick.
If you stay in a holyday house and don't have a food-processor you can buy a tin of Tomate Triturado,but the fresh ripe tomato is always the best.
