Are you on a budget? Are you going to a Potluck Dinner and need a dish? Are you cooking for a family of 4 and need something with taste and flavor? Maybe you’re a single guy and want to impress your date with a romantic dinner for two? I have something special for you!
Everyone loves Italian Food! You can’t argue with me about that! It’s not because I’m Italian, but it’s honestly mouth watering food if cooked properly with the right Organic Ingredients. You don’t have to be Italian to put together a simple Italian Dish.
My Nana always taught me that if you have a few simple ingredients in your house, you can make a low cost dish taste expensive without breaking your wallet. You can even make it healthy by using Organic Products and not feel over the top stuffed after eating a few bites.
So what’s in my “Poor Man’s Italian Dish?”
1-2 tablespoons of Organic Olive Oil (Colavita Olive Oil Organic)
1-2 tablespoons of Organic Minced Garlic
1 whole Organic White Onion Chopped
4-6 medium Roma Tomatoes mashed or chopped
6-10 Organic Basil Leaves chopped or whole
1 teaspoon of Organic Garlic Salt
dash of sea salt
1 box of Ancient Harvest Organic Gluten Free Pasta (serves 2-4 people)
Boil a medium size pot of water for your pasta on high. While that’s heating up, heat a medium size cooking pan on medium heat. Place your olive oil in your pan. Once it begins to heat and bubble slightly, place your minced garlic and chopped onions in pan. Brown your garlic and onions. Cut up your tomatoes and add them to your pan. Mix and sprinkle a little bit of your garlic salt. Lower heat to low on your pan. Place your Ancient Harvest Gluten Free Pasta in your boiling water. You may add a dash of sea salt to your water. Boil pasta on high for about 5-6 minutes or until it’s “al dente” meaning cook it until it’s not all the way soft, but still has a slight bite to it. Once pasta is cooked, drain in a strainer over the sink. Add pasta to pan and increase heat for about 2 minutes by mixing pasta with pan ingredients. Chop up some of your basil and mix into the pan. If pasta seems dry to you, you may drizzle a small amount of olive oil over it, or add more tomatoes if needed. Once everything is mixed together, turn off stove and serve. You may add any organic grated cheese if you like. There’s enough flavor on it’s own to not have to add cheese to save calories. Enjoy!
Here’s a few of my Italian Family members enjoying the dish I just shared with you. My Mom made Organic Sausage and Peppers on the side with a salad that night as well. We even had some Organic Wine.
Pick up some Organic Wine and dump your Chemical filled wine that has “Sulfites” at once!
