Chorizo Spaghetti Bolognese

This bolognese is packed full of flavour and very quick to make! By using the chorizo instead of the usual mince it has the delicious richness with a kick that is so irresistible. Ready on the dinner table in a flash, especially if you use the ready cooked Diamond heat and eat pasta.
