Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil and cook the macaroni for 8-10 minutes until 'al dente.'

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a frying pan set over a moderate heat. Sauté the king prawns with some seasoning for 3-4 minutes, then add the chorizo and cook for a further minute to warm through. Cover and keep warm to one side.

Drain the pasta when ready and spoon into serving bowls. Top with a mixture of the king prawns and chorizo, then sprinkle some diced red pepper on top. Garnish with some saffron strands before serving.
