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