Mafaldine pasta with chilli pesto, king prawns and spicy porkers

Serves 4 20 Minutes

Mafaldine pasta is a ribbon-shaped similar size to tagliatelle. Served with an easy sauce using Scala fiery chilli pesto and Somerset charcuterie spicy cider chorizo porkers. The porkers are similar to pepperoni in look but taste so much better. The kick of the chilli pesto and the warm comfort that pasta just brings makes this a great quick winter dinner.
