Tuesday at the Table - Chorizo and Haloumi pasta

This is a dish that my sister-in-law makes and we all love it as it is quick and tasty. Whether on it's own as a quick meal or as a side dish for a BBQ or chicken pieces/schnitzels this is a great recipe. The unusual texture and salty taste of the haloumi really makes it special!
You need: 
-chorizo sausages (2-3): sliced
-250 g haloumi cheese: cut into thin strips
-punnet of cherry tomatoes: cut into halves 
-spinach leaves
-black pepper
-olive oil 

Cook the pasta and drain. 
Pan fry the chorizo in a small amount of olive oil.
In the same pan cook the haloumi for a minute or two on each side until it is golden in colour.
Add both of these to the pasta, along with the cherry tomatoes and mix through. 
Serve, garnishing with spinach leaves and cracked black pepper.

Enjoy!! Linking to Tuesday at the table with Debbie at A Quilter's Table.
