Cooking is easy, but when it comes to thinking about what to cook, that is the hard part. Today, I didn’t know what to cook, so I am thinking but can’t decide on what to prepare for dinner. I walk into my pantry and see these pasta boxes and decided I shall make it. But when I pull it down, there is little bit of farfalle, penne and some whole wheat pasta in the pantry. Boil all of them mixed together so I have enough for all of us. Pasta is an traditional Italian food which can be prepared so many ways.
- 2 cups of uncooked pasta (farfalle or penne)
- 8-10 cloves of garlic chopped
- Morning Star Farms Griller Crumbles (any other soy granules)
- Pasta Sauce (I used store bought, you can us homemade or store bought)
- 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
- Red crushed peppers
- Olive Oil
- Basil Leaves
- Garlic powder
- Hot Sauce
Boil the water in a pot with olive oil and salt. Add the pasta to the boiling water and let it cook for 12-15 minutes. Make sure you check it after 12 minutes as you don’t want your pasta to overcook. Drain in the cold water when done.
In a pan, add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Let it heat up a little then add the chopped garlic and stir it for a couple of minutes. Now add the soy protein to the garlic and sautee for another few minutes.
Now add the boiled pasta and mix well for another minute or so. Pour approximately 1/2 a cup of pasta sauce to the pasta. Sprinkle the italian seasoning, red crushed peppers, garlic powder.
Let it cook for a good 5-7 minutes. Add the hot sauce and snipped basil and turn it off.
Serve hot with garlic bread or a soup.
