She added: ‘It’s a little bit spicy – the chorizo and olives. Other brands of chorizo aren’t spicy so you could try those and a plain olive if you’re not a fan of chilli.’
Erin also said the entire meal can be made for under $10, and it serves four people.
To make the budget dish, Erin said you’ll need some spaghetti, Parmesan cheese, green olives, onion, chorizo, butter and garlic.
Then, there are just four steps to putting the dish together.
