What's not to love?

There's a time for superfood salads, and then there's also a time for an indulgent bowl of pasta. We decided this weekend would be one of those times for the latter to happen (or it could be every weekend if that floats your boat). Here to add flavour and spice to your regular arrabiata medley, is this recipe from PORTA Fine Food & Import Company. Featuring chilli padis, harissa sauce, large prawns and smoky chorizos, this delightful plate will be sure to please your entire motley crew at home. A word of advice? Feel free to multiply the serving portions; we're pretty sure they'll be coming back for seconds.
