Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and cook the chorizo for 1 minute until some of the oil starts to cook out.

Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes until soft.

Add the risotto rice and cook for 1 minute. Add the vinegar, then the tomato sauce and stir well.

Gradually add the hot stock, a ladleful at a time, stirring the rice until the stock is absorbed before adding the next ladleful. With the last ladleful of stock, add the peas and keep stirring until the rice is cooked. 

Switch off the heat and stir through the Parmesan and butter.

Serve from the pan, with extra Parmesan, roasted cherry tomatoes and a sprinkling of chopped parsley.
