At the last minute last night everyone decided they didn’t want to leave the house for dinner.
I was nominated cook.
Not in my own kitchen, no fresh ingredients in the refrigerator I checked the pantry…
I boiled up a pound of penne and while it was cooking I sliced up a half ring of frozen Earl Campbell Smoked Sausage which was a mixture of chicken, pork and beef. Threw that in a skillet and when it looked like it was cooked through I added a jar of roasted red peppers that I diced up in large pieces and a sprinkling of red pepper flakes and garlic powder.
“They” wanted spaghetti sauce on the pasta so when the pasta was done I added a CAN of Hunt’s pasta sauce that I found in the pantry.
A pound of penne supposedly served 8 and the can of Hunt’s supposedly served 5. That’s a sauce ratio that sounded good to me as I don’t like my pasta swimming in sauce.
Added some of the pasta water to the sausage and peppers and stirred the sauce into the pasta.
I served the pasta topped with the sausage and peppers.
I was shocked that everyone liked it and the smoked sausage tasted good with all the other ingredients.
I think I’ll be making this again.
[p]No cringing. Sounds like a good preliminary plan.[/p][p] [/p][p]OTOH, starting at 9am? You know who would be cringing? The man who’s name we’re honoring with this Crawl, that’s who. ChiTownDiner would have three breakfasts under his belt by that time. But I’m fine with it.[/p][p] [/p][p]Buddy[/p]
