This is a recipe my friend, Stan Cohen showed on his Facebook page a few days ago. When I asked for the recipe, he asked if I ate sausage. When I said, “No.” He replied, “Then, this recipe isn’t for you.”
SILLY WABBIT! When will meat-eaters realize… we have our magic ways! 😉
I told him I could make it without, and so here it is with VEGAN sausage… ready for me to make again and again. Which I definitely will! For being so simple, it was the tastiest thing we’ve had in a long time. I hope you like it as much as we did. And if you do eat sausage, feel free to make it with a regular spicy sausage of your choice. Enjoy!
2 lbs — Italian sausage, with 1/3 of it being spicy. (Or, 2 pkgs. of Beyond Breakfast spicy vegan sausage; 12 patties.)
1 — red bell pepper, cleaned and diced
1 — small onion, chopped, or onion powder to taste
1 — small container of white or portobello mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
Lots of garlic, fresh, or powdered to taste
1 — can stewed tomatoes, chopped while in skillet
1 — head of broccoli, steamed, or boiled in with the noodles
3/4 — box of macaroni, or any shaped noodle you like
Start to boil the water for the macaroni on high heat
Clean and dice all vegetables while waiting for water to come to a boil
Fry sausage, and add onions and garlic. If using frozen patties like I did, break apart as it cooks into a ground
Add the vegetables, (except for the broccoli), to the meat mixture and saute together until cooked through
Once sausage and vegetables are sauteed, add in the can of tomatoes and also break them into bite-sized pieces
Add your macaroni to the water and set the timer according to how you like your pasta cooked
When four minutes away from done, add your broccoli to the water and boil with the noodles
Drain the noodles and broccoli and then add into the skillet with your sausage and vegetables and stir
Note: We ate this for two days and it was delicious! Very simple, flavorful, and more than enough for two nights. You can also add or omit vegetables you don’t like, change or add in other spices, and make it your own. To reheat, microwave or add back to a skillet with a bit of water and heat over medium heat. Enjoy!
