This recipe was a huge hit with my boys! It is so flavorful and a one pan dish, other than the pot you will need to use to boil the pasta! Please try it and let me know how you liked it! you can also check out more pics of this dish and more on my blog.

How to Make Creamy farfalle with spicy chorizo, shrimp and man


  • 1While the pot of water is coming to a boil put a large sauté pan on lowest heat and add butter (unsalted is best but whatever you have) Add a little olive oil and heat. Add the diced onions and cook until caramelized, stir often and keep an eye on them. You want them nice an golden but not burnt. Remove from pan and set aside
  • 2Add the sliced sausage. Cook until heated and until they have a nice color, remove from pan.
  • 3Add the shrimp and cook until just underdone. Remove from pan. Now add some butter and some more oil just a touch of each to get all the bottom of the pan coated and scrap up the bits.
  • 4Add some cream about ½ a cup to start and stir. The cream will change to a nice pinkish color. Taste and season the cream. Turn off the heat, add a bit of the grated cheese and wait until the pasta is done.
    When the pasta is done add it to the pan and turn it on to low heat, mix the pasta into the sauce and add the shrimp, onion, sausage, and peas and mix. Heat through on low and watch carefully. Remove from heat and add the yolk and cheese and mix off the heat, add some pasta water to loosen the sauce if need.
  • 5Taste for seasoning. Add more cheese and serve!
