Hey guys! So I made this yummy vegan meal this past weekend. You could totally add cheese or chicken if you wanted to =)
1 pound of rigatoni (or whatever pasta you have on hand)
2 carrot, sliced 1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 medium zucchini, sliced
1 head small head of broccoli, chopped
1 container of mushrooms, sliced
1 medium yellow squash, sliced
1/2 bell pepper, any color, cut into thin strips.
1 cup red wine
1 jar prepared marinara sauce
1 large can of crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (dried thyme, oregano, basil)
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 heaping tablespoon of sugar
salt and pepper to taste
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
In a large dutch oven, cook down your veggies, about 8 minutes. Add salt and pepper.
Next, add in your tomato paste and garlic. Stir well.
Time for the hooch =) Add in your wine and reduce down, about 3 minutes or so. Combine you crushed tomatoes and jarred sauce to the veggie mixture. Sprinkle in your herbs, sugar, and more salt and pepper to taste.
Cook your pasta.
Add your pasta to your sauce. ENJOY!!!!!
