I had white eggplant and tomatoes that were ripe in my garden (plus I picked some basil) and in the fridge I had green and red peppers about to spoil plus and opened package of turkey bacon I wanted to cook before it spoiled and diced tomatoes in a container. I already wanted to use sausage so that's how last night's dinner came about.
My garden tomatoes!!! I'm finding I have to eat them before the squirrels do. The other night while were eating, a squirrel sat right outside our kitchen window and chowed down on one of m tomatoes, taunting me.
-bulk Italian sausage
-turkey bacon (bake in oven 400 degrees till crispy and break up)
-little wine (whatever you have, or use stock)
-white eggplant - peeled and chopped
- tomatoes - chopped
- can of diced tomatoes
- red peppers
- green peppers
- couple of spoonfuls of minced garlic (from the jar:)
- whole grain Pasta
While the pasta water boiled I browned the sausage and cooked the bacon in the oven. When the sausage was browned I added a little white wine to get the bits off the pan and then added the eggplant, peppers, garlic and canned diced tomatoes. I added the basil, fresh tomatoes and broken up bacon last because they need less cooking time.
