Dinner: whole wheat pasta with
sausage tomato sauce swagu. A lot of these ingredients are leftovers/the same stuff that I used for the breakfast burritos this morning because that’s what was in the fridge. This recipe is pretty customizable to whatever meat or vegetables you have on hand.
dried pasta (whatever shape/type you want)
half pound of Italian sausage
one medium onion, diced
one green bell pepper, diced
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
28oz can of crushed tomatoes
red pepper flakes (optional)
Remove sausages from casings, if needed. Brown in a large pot over med-high heat until almost done. Add diced onions and peppers, as well as the garlic. Add a dash of salt and pepper then cook until the vegetables are soft.
Open the can of tomatoes and add it to the pot. Add a couple shakes of Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Reduce heat to med-low and cover with lid.
In another pot, boil water and cook the pasta.
When the pasta is done, the sauce should be done simmering.
This recipe makes a LOT of sauce (fed 3 people tonight with about one serving left over), so reduce accordingly if you’re cooking for less people and don’t want leftovers.
