Lazy-Day Bruschetta Pasta

Last Saturday night, my parents were going out to dinner, so I had to make dinner for my sister and I. We had just gotten back from a trip the night before, so I was tired and not in the mood to spend hours cooking dinner. But of course, because it’s me;), I wanted something that tasted really good. We had had a ton of Asian food in Cambodia the week before, so I was craving something western, and more specifically pasta! Pasta is absolutely my go-to comfort food dish, but again, I didn’t want to spend a ton of time making the sauce. So I went into our fridge to find a super empty vegetable and meat drawer. We had half an onion, one tomato, garlic, and 3 sausages. Wow, that really wasn’t that helpful, but it was already 5:30 and I didn’t really want to go to the supermarket at that point. So I pulled those things out, along with some olive oil, salt and pepper, and came up with this: Bruschetta Pasta.


1/2 onion

10 cloves of garlic, minced

1 tomato, diced

3 sausages, smashed

Salt and Pepper, to taste



  1. Put 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the minced garlic in a big pan and fry. Add the onions and sausages.
  2. Add extra olive oil, salt and pepper and cover to simmer.
  3. Boil the pasta and add to the sauce. Add the tomato for the last minute and turn the heat off.
  4. Serve with an extra drizzle of olive oil and a crack of pepper.
