Chunky Tomato Angel Hair Pasta

Chunky Tomato Angel Hair Pasta

Today I was a little blank as to what to make for dinner and I didn’t feel like standing over the stove too long. Usually when I am feeling a little lazy, I whip up some kind of pasta.  I stayed true to my M.O. 

I grabbed a bunch of veggies out of the frige, roma tomatoes, zucchini, onions, garlic and red & green peppers.  I sliced them all and cut the tomatoes in wedges. 

I then got some fresh basil and oregano from my herb garden, chopped it up and sprinkled it over the veggies.  I am usually heavy on the basil. 🙂

I tossed everything with olive oil, balsamic vinegar (I seem to be on a balsamic vinegar kick lately) salt & pepper.  

Divide the oven in 3rds with the racks.  Put the mix on a baking sheet and place in the oven at 375 for about 50 mins.  Start on the top rack, half-way through moved to bottom rack.  

When it was almost done roasting I boiled some angel hair and took 3 links of sweet sausage out of their casing and broke them up in a deep pan.  Once the veggies were ready I put them in with the sausage and let it simmer. I was pleased with the result.

Severe sauce over angel hair or mix it together, it is up to you.  If you want a straight up tomato sauce, toss the veggies in a food processor and blend.  It makes a great pizza sauce. I got 4 portions.

Here is a breakdown:

5 Roma tomatoes cut in wedges

1/2 zucchini

1/2 green pepper

1/2 red pepper

1/2 onion in wedges
