Chorizo And Chick Pea Spaghettini

by Tenina Holder


Another dinner on the run at this time of year (and especially for those of you who are all waiting on the return of Dinner Spinner to the store…there on Monday guys…buy up big)! Throw it in, and rush off to decorate, wrap, drop kids off to something, pick kids up from something, put your lippy on, heat up your curling iron, check the laundry has not taken over the laundry room, run the bath or whatever. Delicious dinner done in no time…please enjoy. (In the time that it took to make it, I blogged about it…yes, I’m thinking of you all!)
