Pasta in half an hour

I’m going to share a secret- I don’t really understand what the big deal is about pasta. Remember the late 90’s early 00’s pasta fashion where everytime you went out for dinner someone would be gushing over pasta? Anyway. Since then pasta and I have come a small way in that I will cook and enjoy it now and *gasp* occasionally order it when out.

Which brings us to the point of this post- Pasta in a Hurry

For the sauce:

roughy chop approximately 100 grams of csabi salami (or leave it out for a veggie sauce)

1 can whole tomatoes

1/2 jar of pureed tomato

1/2 zuchinni, chopped

5 black olives, sliced

half brown onion, finely chopped

several capers

fresh garden herbs (I used oregano and thyme)

optional #1 – several dried out mushrooms forgotten in the back of the fridge

optional #2 – roughly chop any left over chicken that comes your way

In a non stick wok, heat a few teaspoons of olive oil. Brown the meats and onions. Add everything except the tomotoes and stir until the vegetables are softening up. Add the tomato puree and whole tomatoes, bring to the boil, then simmer for 15 minutes.

Serve on a pasta of your choice. I used packet tortellini.
