Recipe so easy even Christine can do it!

Eat in Month. I'm doing ok. I've cut back my eating out to 1 day a week (excluding $1 coffee from speedway because my coffee make broke). I'm determined to do better but as a college student who doesn't ALWAYS want to cook for just myself and have a ton of leftovers, it's hard to do. But I did cook today and did really well!

For breakfast I had a Special K shake, chocolate flavored!

I had to have a quick lunch between classes.
It was a Myloplex bar and banana.

For dinner I went all out, with Vodka Cream pasta with Spicy Italian Turkey Sausage!
Here's the recipe:
  • 1 lb. Spicy turkey sausage
  • 1 32 oz can of tomatoes, flavored with basil, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 large bunch of basil, chopped
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 lb Penne pasta
  • Preheat large skillet. Drizzle with olive oil and add sausage to pre-heated pan. Brown sausage. Add onions and garlic and saute until translucent. Drain and add tomatoes. Add vodka. Turn heat to a simmer. Break up tomatoes with a spoon or potato masher. If more liquid is needed add pasta water.
  • In a separate saucepan, while sauce is simmering, bring water to boil for pasta. Cook pasta according to package directions
  • When pasta is done, Add cream to sauce and bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Add basil and stir until just wilted. Serve over pasta, and don’t forget the garlic toast!

  1. Ummmm...YUM! That looks delicious. I will definitely have to try out this recipe, even if it is for no other reason than to prove whether or not it is actually easy enough for me to do it. :-)
