I came up with this recipe today, mostly because my lack of options in my refrigerator. This super cheap and ridiculously easy recipe will fill you up without busting your wallet and (are you ready for this ?) it’s vegan friendly (Kitty’s fave). Could easily feed a family of 5 or make for great leftovers for the week and probably costs ehhhh under $5 for the non-broth option, if you don’t already have most of the ingredients already.
1 small can of fire roasted tomatoes
1 chopped up large sweet pepper
4 cups of water (or 4 cups of low sodium vegetable broth for more flavor)
1 half of an onion chopped
3 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of dried basil
salt and pepper to taste
sprinkle of parsley , and box of angel hair pasta or any damn pasta you want - you want bow tie, have bow tie…linguini probably also would be delightful. I used the high fiber angel hair from Barilla. Cook ultra low on the stove for 1hr or so, stirring regularly.
Feel free to add mushrooms, I would have but didn’t have any on hand. Have fun with this. If you’re not vegan, maybe add some leftover chicken you’re sick of looking at in your fridge. It’s really hard to mess this one up.
