Chorizo Edamame Rigatoni

Chorizo Edamame Rigatoni Recipe by Momma Cuisine

Weeknights are infamous for being hectic, busy and full of activities. Sitting down for a homemade meal may seem impossible at times. This recipe takes only 3 ingredients and tosses them together in a pasta dish that is sure to please the entire family!

Pasta recipes are usually simple. Tossing in some of your favorite or ingredients at hand can turn into an incredible meal. On this night, I rummaged through the fridge and found a bag of frozen organic edamame, some Mexican chorizo and a bag of rigatoni pasta. I thought, "Well, that's dinner then!!" And it was well received!      


  • 1 pound rigatoni pasta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound Mexican chorizo, out of the casing
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen edemame
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Boil a pot of hot salted water and cook the rigatoni noodles until al dente.

Heat a large saute pan with olive oil to medium-high heat. Add the chorizo and brown and break into smaller chunks with a wooden spoon.

Once the chorizo have browned about 8-10 minutes, add the frozen edemame and Italian seasoning and gently toss until the edemame have been heated all the way through. Then, add the rigatoni pasta. Toss with salt.

Toss together until incorporated and add grated Parmesan cheese, toss again and serve.
