Pasta pasta pasta.
Make ahead, heat and eat quickly.
This isn’t gourmet living, but it works as an easy weeknight meal or on those days when we’re all eating at different times.
Just remember to tell the 16-year-old after swim practice that the container serves 4 (is not his alone!)
- 1 lb ground Italian sausage (we prefer hot)
- 1 onion, chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 28 oz can diced tomatoes
- 28 oz can tomato sauce
- 28 oz water
- 2 c chicken broth
- 1/2 lb pasta shells
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp basil
- Salt, pepper and crushed red pepper to taste
Saute meat until cooked through, drain fat. Add onion and cook 2-3 min, add garlic and cook another minute. Add tomatoes, sauce, water and broth, bring to simmer, add pasta and herbs. Cook 15-20 min on low until noodles are tender. Top with mozzarella or parmesan.
