But I always come back. I guess I just don't know what's good for me.
I also seem to be a glutton for punishment when it comes to making dinner. I really need to work on not planning elaborate meals for weeknights. I either need to prep everything beforehand or find something really easy.
And this dish? This dish is really easy. It's hardly a recipe at all. This dish makes my "chop up fresh tomatoes and toss with olive oil and garlic" recipe seem complicated. Mostly because it involves chopping. This recipe does not. It does require the use of a can opener, so if that seems above your skill level, consult with an adult who can help you out.
Fire Island Ziti (from Taste of Home)
1 15oz can diced tomatoes, juice reserved
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon salt
8 ounces uncooked ziti
2 broccoli crowns cut into florets
1 pound Italian sausage links, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Grated Parmesan cheese
- Cook ziti. Place broccoli in the strainer and drain the pasta into the strainer so the pasta water cooks the broccoli as it passes through. (One of these days I'll remember to take a picture of this)
- Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until browned.
- Add red pepper flakes and cook for 1minute.
- Stir in the tomatoes and their juices. Heat through.
- Add the cooked ziti and sprinkle with cheese.
