Back to school, back to busy schedules, back to whatever you’re back to, I bet you’re busy. That’s where this 10-minute sun-dried tomato pasta comes in. It’s hearty, tangy, and perfect for those weeknights when you need something to eat in 10 minutes or less!
This is one of those recipes that I made for myself, without the intention of sharing it on the blog, and as soon as I took a bite, knew that I had to. I joke that I could rival Rachael Ray’s 30-minute meals, with my own version, 10-minute meals with Em.
All you need to do to make this 10-minute sun-dried tomato pasta is cook the pasta…unless raw pasta is your thing…heat up the sausage, and blend together the sun-dried tomato sauce in your food processor. Then just throw it over the warm pasta, add the chicken sausage, black olives, and serve!
Speaking of the sun-dried tomato sauce, I really hit the nail on the head here. But I guess I should let you be the judge of that. It’s sweetened with a little bit of Just Date Syrup but you could also use honey or maple syrup in equal amounts. The founders of Just Date Syrup sent me some of their products to try and I’ve been loving it so far.
It’s really that easy. You can sub in whatever pasta you’d like to meet your dietary needs. I used whole wheat because I’m working on clearing out my cabinets before buying more, but I also really love Banza for a grain-free option with more protein.
ALRIGHT that’s all I’ve got for you. Quick and easy 10-minute sun-dried tomato pasta to cure your weeknight dinner blues. Hope you love it as much as I do!
