I listen to many cooks who love cooking... slow cooking. They actually linger over the stove, slowly sauteing, slowly adding ingredients as in slowly putting in this or that, slowing turning or stirring. They think that all this slow cooking makes the food more tasty or enjoyable or whatever.
But, that is not the case. You can get more flavor from food that is not slow cooked and certainly not over cooked. Make it fast and frugal and you will still have quality in flavor and nutritional benefits.
For this dish you will need: good bulk (1lb) Italian sausage, one purple onion, one large can of crushed tomatoes, penne pasta and dried herbs. Saute the chopped onion in olive oil, push aside and add the sausage. After the sausage is browned, add the tomato sauce and dried herbs: rosemary, mint and oregano. Boil the penne on the side while the sauce simmers.
Serve and watch it disappear!
