Garlicky Tomatoey Weeknight Pasta – Pai’s Kitchen!

Posted: Tuesday, June 28, 2016

I came up with this dish because I was craving some tomatoey pasta (which happens quite often!), but I didn’t have time for a slow-simmering pot of tomato sauce to be done, so I whipped out my wok and put this together, and it turned out absolutely delicious!

With just a few simple ingredients, it’s a handy recipe to have in your back pocket for when you’re tired and hungry from work and need to put satisfying food on the table quickly. I use roasted eggplant in this video but you certainly can change it up with other vegetables you like to roast. The sausage is totally optional so it can absolutely be vegetarian or vegan. Enjoy!
