PASTA QUEST DAY...week 3...DAY 15

This is one of my creations...like all the others there is nothing fancy about it except the taste!



Penne pasta w zucchini, sausage, celery.

INGREDIENTS:

Pasta
Loose sausage
Zucchini, cut into small pieces
Celery, chopped
Garlic, chopped
Onion
Tomato paste, 2 tablespoons
Olive oil
Ciabatta bread cut into crouton size pieces

PROCESS:

Cooke the sausage and remove from pan. Deglaze pan with wine if needed, add olive oil and 1 pad of butter and cook the bread until golden brown and remove. Add more oil and cook the onions and garlic along with 1 tablespoon of tomato paste until soft. Then add the zucchini , celery, and sausage, along with a splash of white wine and cook. Add the pasta and mix well then top with the croutons and grated cheese…we used Romano tonight.

Add the pasta and mix. Salt and pepper to taste.

COMMENTS:

Patience gave it a 10, after all, it is my birthday. I’ll give it a nine and a half. I don’t think I would change anything when I make it again.

I forgot to mention…salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and Basil.
