Pasta Dinner in a Dash!

Don't have much time to cook a meal? In a hurry, on your way out? Or is it just getting too late and want food now?? Well here's a simple recipe that you can make in roughly 20 minutes!

 Here's what you'll need:
  • 1 lb of your favorite pasta. (any type works great!)
  • 1 jar of your favorite sauce (or pre-prepared sauce.. remember, under 20 minutes!)
  • 1 pkg of a ground meat. (I like turkey and chicken because it's healthier.)
  • 1 large pot of water
  • 1/2 Tbls Onion Powder
  • 1/2 Tbls Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 Tbl Basil
  • 1/2 Tbs Oregano
  • Dash of Red Pepper Flakes
  • And a Pinch of Salt and Pepper
First thing is first, fill the pot with water, and put it on the burner. This WILL take the longest. Now once the pot of water is waiting to boil put a medium sized pan on high heat and let it get hot. Once its relatively hot, chuck in the ground meat, this time I used chicken. I threw onion powder, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper on it - feel free to add whatever flavors you like! Once you throw the meat in, get your spatula and start breaking apart the meat while mixing in the spices at the same time. Allow meat to cook fully then throw in the jar of sauce in the same hot pan and allow to simmer until the pasta is completely finished. Once your pasta is finished, throw that into a strainer create a bed of pasta on a plate. Turn off the sauce, and place in the middle of your pasta bed.


The entire meal takes as long as it takes to basically boil water!!
(P.s. That bread, butter and garlic will return at a later post.. So make sure you check back for something awesome!!)
