There is, of course, to be no denying that chorizo - or chouriço - is an indubitably Iberian sausage, hailing from Italy's Latin brothers Spagna and Portogallo. However, in our pasta evangelism we search far and wide for the perfect fillings for our little tortelloni, and, in this dish, one of our most beautiful creations has been born, so we hope you'll forgive our venturing beyond il bel paese.
Indeed, this week's tortelloni are individually made by hand before being filled with chorizo, a sausage renowned for its deep, savoury smokiness and gentle pimentón heat. To enhance the deep meat flavour of the chorizo, and further up the spice quotient, we serve our tortelloni in a passionate hot bed of chilli-laced tomato sauce. A scattering of wonderfully aged and tangy Parmigiano Reggiano completes this dish. And believe us, it's bonit- ... scusa, bellisimo!
