Broccoli Pasta w/Roasted Veggie Sauce

Posted on August 16, 2011


Here is a great way to use your canned sauce for a one dish meal.

Brown 1/2 lb. ground turkey or extra lean hamburger.  Add one jar of your own roasted tomato sauce (or a batch that is freshly made) and simmer.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Throw in your favorite pasta shape and cook.  Time your pasta, and when you think you have about five minutes left, throw in a bunch of broccoli flowerets.  Drain pasta/broccoli, top with sauce, and sprinkle with Parmesan!

My kids will eat a lot of broccoli this way.
