  2. Meanwhile, in a medium frying pan, toast pine nuts on high, stirring continuously, until golden.  Remove from pan.
  3. Thinly slice 1 chorizo.  Discard casing and finely chop.  In same frying pan, cook sliced and chopped chorizo on high, stirring until well brown.  Drain on paper towel.  Reserve chorizo oil.
  4. Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk ingredients together.  Season to taste.
  5. In a large bowl, combine pasta, nuts and chorizo with tomatoes, rocket and dressing, tossing gently.  Serve pasta topped with cheese and drizzled with reserved chorizo oil.
