This one was a quick meal I created the other day when I did not feel like cooking, nor eating out. I have been very busy with my business and I needed to make this quickly. This is basic and can be utilized soo many ways. This is really quick and easy with leftover meats as well!
Penne Pasta – Wheat Note: You could use the spiral if that’s all you have.
Red Sauce (ready made in Jar – I used Garlic with Herb)
Bell pepper, Onions, Garlic
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Brown the meat, and boil the pasta. Once the pasta was done, I put in the collander for rinsing. In the pot that I cooked the pasta, I quickly simmered bell pepper, onion & garlic in olive oil. I added the pasta back and stirred. Add the red sauce and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the meat to the pasta and cook for another 5 minutes. Sprinkle cheese either in the pot or after it has been put on the plate.
Add fresh spinach to the pasta mix before the meat.
You could use chicken, smoked sausage, shrimp or any meat – even combined. I don’t think it would be good with beef at all though.
Add dried tomatoes instead of a red sauce and a little more extra virgin Olive Oil.
Hope you enjoy it!!
