Curry and Comfort's Weekly Sunday Summary 9/15/14 thru 9/21/14

Yum
 

 Happy Sunday Everyone!

The season of Autumn is upon is just a few days....so I a rushing up to finish all the summer dishes that I want to post before all the fall inspired dishes take over.  I love this time of year because the weather has not decided if we are in summer or fall so we have the best of both with warm weather and cool gentle breezes. 

When I walk into all the shops around here, I see all the Halloween candy and fall decorations on the shelves ... sadly, I even saw one shop already decorated for Christmas.  What!! I can't even think that far ahead yet... let me enjoy the season of Autumn first.  So, if you are lucky enough to experience the season's changing... enjoy these wonderful first days of fall we have to look forward too.

Now here is my week in review:

Roasted Tomato and Sausage Pasta

Yum

During the summer, cooking dinner was a time I could spend in the kitchen and concentrate on the meal ahead.  These days, I am also helping with homework while I cook dinner.  So I came up with this great pasta dish that gets done in the oven while I spend time looking over homework and helping practice multiplication tables.  Then all I have to do is boil the pasta and cook a few more minutes on the stove before dinner is ready.  This meal was a big hit with the family. That's a good thing because I see this meal happening a lot this school year. 


Ingredients:
1 (12oz) box of spaghetti or linguine pasta
1lb of kielbasa sausage (any flavor you like)
2 pints of grape tomatoes
8-10 fresh cloves of garlic
1 medium onion sliced
1 large handful of fresh basil leaves torn into small pieces
red chili flakes to taste
1 tsp dried oregano 
salt and black pepper to taste
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup starchy pasta water

 Directions:
In a 375 degree oven back the sliced kielbasa, sliced onion, grape tomatoes and garlic for 45-55 minutes.  Separate the kielbasa from the rest of the ingredients.






Boil pasta in salted water until 90% cooked.  Then remove 1 cup of starchy pasta water and set aside.  Drain pasta.   In the same pot you boiled the pasta add the roasted tomatoes, onions, garlic and starchy pasta water.  Smash with a potato masher.

Then add the salt, black pepper, red chili flakes, dried oregano, kielbasa, torn basil leaves and cook for a minute.  Toss with cooked pasta and Parmesan cheese for a few more minutes.  Serve hot.  Enjoy.
