- Step 1
Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of salted boiling water following packet directions until al dente. Drain, reserving 250ml (1 cup) of the cooking liquid. Return the pasta to the pan and cover to keep warm.
- Step 2
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the chorizo sausages and cook, turning occasionally, for 4 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to drain. Use a sharp knife to diagonally cut the chorizo sausages into thin slices. Drain the oil from the pan, reserving 1 tablespoon.
- Step 3
Heat the reserved oil in the same pan over medium heat. Add the zucchini and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for 7 minutes or until the zucchini softens.
- Step 4
Add the pasta, reserved cooking liquid, chorizo sausage, ricotta and basil. Gently toss until just combined and heated through. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
- Step 5
Divide the pasta among serving bowls and serve immediately.
