This is a perfect dish that I often prepare on a crazy evening when everything has to be done fast but still the meal needs to be nutritious and tasty. Do you recognize yourself in this situation? Then I have a great pasta with paprika sauce, sun dried tomatoes and chorizo. Original and full of flavor, simple but still an exquisite dish. You will love it:)
