Stocking up your pantry is a key factor for making your life easy, making dinner after a long day at work should be effortless and that achieved by having you’re pantry well stocked up with all kind of can vegetables, tomato sauces, dry herbs, dry onion, dry garlic, all type of dry pasta. I keep all of that on hands for quick meals.

This is the last tomato sauce you will ever need, at least in my opinion 🙂 this sauce is ready in 30 minutes and it will taste like it was simmering all day long.

It’s an ideal easy fool proof for  busy moms that had a long day at work…

Granted there are great sauces that you could pickup at the store but why spend 30 minuets of your time shopping after a long day at work when you could easily make this delouses meal from scratch for the same amount of time!

.2 Cans 14.5 oz diced fire roasted tomatoes with garlic

.1 Can 8 oz of tomato sauce

.1 Can 6 oz of tomato paste

.1 Package smoked beef kielbasa sausage

.3 Tablespoon olive oil

.1/2 Tablespoon salt

.1/2 Tablespoon black pepper

.1/2 Teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)

.1/2 Tablespoon dry basil

.1/2 Teaspoon dry oregano

.2 Tablespoon dry chopped onion

.1 Tablespoon dry slivered garlic

.1/2 cup water

1/2 cup of gradated Parmesan cheese

1 package of whole wheat dry spaghetti

In a large sauce pan heat olive oil, chop the sausage to small bite size; add crushed red pepper, salt, black pepper, dry onion and dry slivered garlic, sauté for a minute making sure not to burn the onion and garlic.

Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste and water, and dried herbs, stir well and cover to simmer for about 25 to 30 minutes.

Cook your pasta according to the package instructions and add to the sauce, mix well and cook together for a minute or two. Add cheese and serve.

your pasta should never wait for your sauce, the sauce should be made and ready before you boil your pasta.
