Chorizo & tomato instant noodles in a pot

Instant noodles needn't be the processed stuff. With a bit of imagination, these chorizo and tomato instant noodles in a pot are just as quick and just as super.


Put the chorizo, onions and fennel into a heatproof pot with the noodles.

Season the passata well, add the basil, and put in a small jar separately.

When ready to eat, pour boiling water over the noodles to just cover, add the passata and leave for 5-6 minutes. Stir and eat.
