Instructions

Cook rigatoni
1
  • Add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Add rigatoni to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 10-12 min.
  • Reserve 1/2 cup (1 cup) pasta, then drain and return rigatoni to the same pot, off heat. 
Prep
2
  • Meanwhile, thinly slice chives. 
  • Roughly chop spinach. 
Cook chorizo
3
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • When hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then chorizo. Cook, breaking up chorizo into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.**
  •  Carefully drain and discard excess fat. Sprinkle smoked paprika and garlic powder over chorizo. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1- 2 min. Remove the pan from heat.

Cook cheese sauce
4
  • Meanwhile, heat a medium pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter and swirl the pan to melt.
  • When butter is melted, sprinkle flour over top. Cook, whisking constantly, until golden, 1-2 min. Once golden, slowly whisk in cream and reserved pasta water until smooth. (TIP: Add liquids in small increments to prevent lumps.)
  • Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, cook, whisking often, until sauce thickens slightly, 4-6 min. Add cheese and whisk until melted.
Finish and serve
5
  • Add cheese sauce, spinach and chorizo to the pot with rigatoni. Season with salt and pepper, then stir until spinach wilts, 1 min.
  •  Divide pasta between plates.
  • Sprinkle crispy shallots and chives over top.
