The hubby and I eat at home most nights, and believe me not every night’s dinner is a big production. Sometimes it’s a matter of looking in the pantry and refrigerator, seeing what’s there and making something of it.
So it was with this pasta sauce which turned out to be very flavorful and part of a most satisfying meal. Best of all, it was a quick fix which is always a good thing when it comes to spending time in the kitchen.
Sausage/Tomato Pasta Sauce
1 lb. sausage cut into 1″ pieces*
28 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 onion finely chopped
3 cloves minced garlic
1 T. olive oil
1 T. Italian seasoning or any aromatic spice
salt and pepper to taste
1 c. fresh or frozen green peas
1/2 c. vodka (optional)
1/2 c. cream (optional)
*Any of the delicious Italian or packaged turkey/chicken sausages will work for this dish.
