1.Drain the beans and rinse them well. In a large saucepan, cover the beans with plenty of salted water. Bring to the boil and cook for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat and simmer for 45 minutes or until soft and creamy to the bite. Drain them again and set aside.
2.Casually rinse the pot, add the oil and sauté the onions for 1-2 minutes. Throw in the chorizo and fry until it releases its lovely orange oil. Pour in the tomatoes, add the paprika, cooked beans and enough of the water/stock to your desired consistency. Simmer, taste and then season with salt and pepper.
3.Serve in bowls topped with a dollop of pesto and a sprinkling of Parmesan.

Use tinned beans if you prefer and add them in with the tomatoes.
