This is a traditinal Portuguese dish that we make mainly during the winter. It is very satisfying and comforting. It makes a big batch and serves up to 6 people. You also can bring it to work, just microwave it and you will have a delicious lunch. —Candyland Queens
In a large pan, add the onion, garlic, chourizo, olive oil. Cook for a few minutes until the onion turns gold and soft.
Add the beef, salt and pepper and let the beef fry for a couple of minutes. As soon as the beef losses its pink/red color add the water, penne and garbanzo. Let everything cook in medium-low for 15-20 minutes. If the pasta looses the water too quickly add a little bit more. Make sure to stir the pasta a couple of times, while it cooks.
