How to Make Fresh Grated Pasta


  • 8 ounces dried chorizo, thinly sliced on the bias
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 pound capellini, broken into 2-inch pieces

How to make this recipe

  1. In a very large skillet, cook the chorizo over moderately high heat until crisp, about 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chorizo to a plate. Drain off all but 3 tablespoons of the chorizo oil in the skillet.

  2. Add the onion and garlic to the skillet and cook over moderate heat until tender, about 4 minutes. Add the capellini and cook, stirring, until toasted, about 3 minutes. Add the thyme, butter beans, chicken stock, tomato puree and the reserved chorizo. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Cover the skillet and simmer over moderate heat until the pasta is tender, about 2 minutes. Let the fideos stand for 1 minute, then spoon into bowls and serve.
