Olive, 'Chorizo' and Tomato Pasta for Caterers

This recipe for Olive, Chorizo and Tomato Pasta has become a favourite to serve at Viva!'s Incredible Veggie Roadshows and can be eaten hot or cold. 

Buy VBites ready-made Chorizo-style pieces - or make your own from our lovely spicy sausage recipe (which also includes product stockists)

 

Lots of red wines are vegan: Co-op labels their vegan wines clearly on the bottle. Barnivore is the go-to for all vegan booze. Majestic has a good range. Tesco, Sainsbury's, Aldi, M&S etc all sell vegan wine - google their vegan lists. Here is a good Google search page too

If you don't like alcohol leave it out from the recipe!
