- 1/4 olive oil
- 2 cloved minced garlic
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 10 oz chopped andouille sausage link
- 2 chopped tomatoes
- 1 lb. pasta, your choice for shape
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 pats butter
- 1/2 pound shredded chicken, or vegan chicken. Pre-cook your chicken! The tomatoes will turn the chicken pink, so you want to make sure your chicken is thoroughly cooked before mixing it with the tomatoes.
- Season to taste: paprika, basil, oregano, salt, black pepper
Fill your large pot with water and bring to a boil. While you are waiting for your pasta pot to boil, mix your sauce ingredients together into a large sauce pot. The tomatoes will add a little juice to the sauce. This helps it cook, and keeps your sauce from drying out. Embrace the juice.
Cook the sauce on low for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.
When your water in your pasta pot boils, add the pasta. Cook until your pasta achieves it’s desired tenderness.
Once your pasta is done cooking, and your sauce has cooked for 30 minutes, drain your pasta and add the sauce to the pot. Mix the pasta and the sauce together. Voila! You have finished cooking your andouille sausage pasta dinner!
Serve, top with grated parmesan, and enjoy! I hope you love this easy pasta dish with a kick! If andouille sausage isn’t your thing, you can always make this dish a milder sausage of your choice. The possibilities are endless!
