I enjoy cooking but sometimes I am limited by what I can eat. And, I don't always have time to make an elaborate meal. I have taken a tip from the french and starting using simplified meals that pack a bold punch. Let the ingredients do the talking and they will speak volumes. And, with this dish, they are shouting! While this particular recipe is for one (I made it for lunch), it can be doubled and tripled for multiple people and multiple meals. It is super easy to make and hardly costs a thing.
1/2 C Whole Foods Organic Orecchiette Rigate Pasta
1 Link of Trader Joe's Spinach Fontina & Garlic Chicken Sausage
1 Tbsp Trader Joe's Organic EVOO
1/4 C Avocado Oil
1/2 Tsp Pesto
1 Sun Dried Tomato (sliced thinly)
1 Tsp Oregano
1 Garlic clove- minced
1 Tsp Fine Herbs
Cook pasta per directions on box. Drain and set aside.
Slice Sauce and add to saucepan and cook until lightly browned. Add Avocado oil, EVOO, Pesto and Garlic to saucepan with sausage. Once combined, add Sun Dried Tomato, Oregano, and Fine Herbs and stir well. Fold in pasta and completely cover with oil mixture. Continue to stir and combine for about 5 additional minutes, until pasta is completely covered. Top with grated Parmesan cheese & Enjoy!
