Easy and Awesome Fettucini

Pasta has got to be the perfect 'instant' meal and this one is a beauty and almost completely idiot proof. This is to serve two and takes about as long as it takes the pasta water to boil and the pasta to cook, roughly 20 minutes.

2 chorizo sausages (or other small spicy sausage)
4 slices of prosciutto
1 onion, roughly chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced or finely chopped
1 courgette finely diced
1 tin of whole tomatoes
1 tablespoon of tomato paste
1 tablespoon of capers
Salt & pepper

Put the salted pasta water on to boil in a large pot and once boiling add your spaghetti or fettucini.
Slice the chorizo and the prosciutto and fry in a pan until slighly browned and set aside.
Meanwhile fry the onion until soft then add the garlic and fry for 2 minutes more.
Add the tomato paste and mix into the onion and garlic and cook for 2 or 3 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and season using salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Break up the tomatoes in the pot and heat until reduced a little and the pasta is ready.
Drain the pasta and serve in bowls with the chorizo and prosiutto on top and then the tomato sauce and plenty of fresh grated parmesan or romano cheese. Primo!
