Wednesday night is pasta night around here.
Being of Italian descent, it was a staple growing up
and it is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods.
This is called "Kitchen Sink Pasta" because it is concocted
with everything and anything leftover in the fridge.
In just 30 minutes, a delicious meal can be had.
As the pasta was cooking (20 minutes),
I reserved about 1/4 cup of the liquid to add later.
After draining the pasta, I threw in 2 fresh tomatoes (diced) into a little olive oil,
some salt and Italian seasoning, 2 cloves of garlic, the reserved cooking liquid and about 1/4 C vegetable stock.
This got simmered until the tomatoes started to break down (8 minutes).
The pasta got added back in to the pot and I threw in
some cooked white beans, goat cheese (omit for vegan option) and steamed broccoli.
We didn't add any other type of cheese,
but you certainly could top this with some parmesan or nutritional yeast to keep it vegan.
Any of your favorite goodies can be added for a combination your family will love.
The bonus is that this tastes even better the second day.
What's your favorite pasta medley?
