Clean Out The Refrigerator Pasta!

Once a week, I take everything out of the refrigerator and make a pasta out of it!  It sometimes turns out to be the best meal of the week!

Broken pasta with onion, sweet potato, cauliflower, cilantro and sausage...  Fantastic!

Recipe for four:

half a packet of pasta, broken into thirds
1 red onion, chopped
1/2 cauliflower, chopped
1 c sweet potato, chopped
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
4 English bangers, cut into 1/2" slices with scissors
1 c chicken or veggie stock
1 t smoked paprika
salt and pepper
olive oil
1 T butter

First get the pasta going in boiling salted water.  While that's happening, brown the sausage in a heavy saute pan with some olive oil.  Set aside when done.

Using the same pan add the onion, sweet potato, cauliflower, butter and season with s&p.  Cook until soft.  Half way through add the paprika.  When finished you with notice some brown sticky stuff in the bottom of the pan, pour in the stock and scrape all that stuff up so it combines with the veggies.  Add the sausage back to the pan.

When the pasta is almost done, drain and mix it with the veggies and sausage.  It will finish cooking and soak up some of the stock.  Add the cilantro, and serve onto warm plates.

Bon Appetit!  Chef Hobbes
