  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 chopped onions
  • 225g ring of chorizo, skin removed, roughly chopped
  • 25g butter
  • 4 tbsp flour

  • Preheat the oven to 200C. Boil the macaroni in salted water for 8 mins, then drain and toss with some olive oil. Set aside. Tip the onions and chorizo to a roasting tin with another splash of oil and some seasoning, then roast for 20 mins. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan and stir in the flour. Cook for 1 minute, then slowly add the milk, stirring continuously until you get a thick and glossy sauce. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese, paprika and some seasoning.
  • Stir the onions, chorizo and pasta into the sauce. Spoon the mixture into an ovenproof dish and sprinkle with more paprika, then bake for 30 mins until golden and bubbling. Serve with a green salad.
