Dinner tonight: pasta with tomato & sausage
Writing about cinnamon put me in the mood for pasta with a hint of Ceylon cinnamon to enhance the tomatoes. I sautéed half a large red onion and some ginger in olive oil. When they were lightly browned I added white wine, cooked that down, and added a can of chopped tomatoes, a bay leaf, a cinnamon leaf and a dried chili. After simmering a few minutes, I added some cooked Italian sausage. By that time the pasta water had come to a boil.
When the pasta (whole wheat shells) was almost al dente, I added it to the sauce with a little of its water to finish cooking. A handful of chopped parsley, and dinner was served. Larry’s verdict: YUM!
The onion & ginger were from Pit Farm, parsley from Milner Farm, and cinnamon & bay leaf from Wailea Ag Group.
