Some days I have absolutely no idea what I am going to make for dinner and I just stare at the fridge and my cupboards going “I wonder how it would taste to mix ____ with ____” that is pretty much how this meal came together. I honestly had no idea if this was going to end with me ordering a pizza or being in love with a new dish. As I am writing this you can guess I didn’t end up with a pizza!
Skillet Pasta, Sausage & Beans: Serves 4-6
1 Zucchini – Chopped
1 Onion – Chopped
7oz Smoked Turkey Sausage – Chopped
1TB Minced Garlic
2tsp Olive Oil
1/4tsp Red Pepper Flakes
15oz Tomato Sauce
15oz Canned Black Beans – Rinsed
1 Can Summer Crisp Corn
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook pasta to al dente, drain and set to the side. While the pasta is cooking place the garlic and olive oil in a large saute pan and turn the heat to medium. Cook for a minute then add the zucchini, onion and sausage to the pan with a pinch of salt (less than normally – the sausage is salty), pepper and the red pepper flakes. Saute the veggies until they are nice and tender, then add the beans, corn, tomato sauce and cooked pasta to the pan and give it all a toss and let it cook together for 3-4 minutes to heat the beans and corn together. Remove from the pan, cover and let it sit for 4-5 minutes then serve and enjoy.
