Chorizo and Garlic Pasta
I love a quick and simple pasta dish but this is a on a level of it's own. Minimal ingredients, minimal time but maximum flavour! A great get out of jail card recipe for days when you're short on time.
For Exercise Day
Pasta is a great source of carbohydrates to replenish glycogen stores after high intensity exercise. This recipe contains a good amount of fat therefore would be best to save for meals not too close to high intensity training.
This recipe will provide you with over 70% of your recommended intake of Vitamin C for the day. Red peppers are a great source of Vitamin C and other antioxidant containing vitamins.
Save time by making an extra portion of this dish to have for dinner the next evening after training.
