I whipped together a simple pasta recipe that I just had to share.
-Pasta (whatever you can get your hands on, we used our last box of conventional rigatoni, we usually buy our local pasta at the Clintonville Coop)
-14 oz. canned diced tomatoes plus one (optional) fresh tomato (We got local our tomatoes from Carfagna's)
-2 cloves garlic minced (local from the North Market)
-1/4-1/2 onion chopped (local from Columbus Winter Market)
-1 cooked Gerber's chicken kielbasa, thinly sliced (local from Hill's Market)
-1/2 cup or more mozzarella cheese (local from Worthington Market)
-1-2 tsp. dried basil
-1-2 tsp. dried oregano
-1-2 tsp. salt
-1-2 tsp. pepper
-Approx. 3 tbs. chicken broth (we freeze our chicken broth in ice cube trays, so we used one cube)
-1 tbs. oil
-While pasta is cooking, heat oil in a skillet on medium heat. Add onions and garlic, add broth, and saute until onion is soft. Add sausage, tomatoes, herbs, and spices and simmer until heated through, stirring occasionally.
-Drain pasta and put back in the pot. Pour the skillet contents over the pasta and mix. Add the mozzarella cheese and mix again.
-We recommend serving this with some local mixed lettuces (we got ours from Northridge Organic farm)!
