On a slow Saturday afternoon, I rolled out some fresh, soaked whole wheat pasta, and then, while Joel grilled some veggies, I made a simple and yummy sauce featuring tomatoes, parsley, chicken broth, white wine, and mild Italian sausage. I cut up the grilled veggies, cooked up the fresh pasta, and then tossed it all together. The result was delightful. Definitely a little more time and work then my normal dinner plans, but so worth it for a nice weekend dinner with extended family. I will share a simpler version of this pasta sauce soon.
I think that there is something so right about Italian food and family get togethers! There is nothing like a huge bowl of pasta in front of hungry family members for good family time.
Despite the fact that this dish has it’s root’s squarely in Italy, there was something about the play of sweetness from the wine, the veggies and the garlic spears that reminded us of Yakisoba! Well, whatever it tasted like, it was good!
