Pasta Toss Recipe

Pasta Toss Notes

I make this to cut down on several steps for simple pasta dishes. I've done it with all kinds of meat and veggies tossed in. Use whatever you feel like.

Ingredients
Serves / Yields

4-8 servings

Preparation Instructions

Cook pasta to desired doneness.

While it's cooking mix all the ingredients, except the cheese, in a large mixing bowl.

When pasta is done, drain and add to mixing bowl, toss to coat, add cheese and toss until mixed.

While the pasta is cooking, I simply saute whatever I feel like topping the pasta with (chicken, shrimp, veggies, etc.) in a little chile oil. I use whatever seasonings I feel like, and always deglaze with white wine at the end.

Serve pasta topped with whatever you made in it's own pan juices.

Helpful Hints

This is very good by itself, if you don't want to top it with anything else. I just don't think it's a meal without something else.

I make my own chile oil by warming a 17 ounce bottle of olive oil with 2 tablespoons of crushed red pepper flakes, in a sauce pan over low heat for about 5 minutes. Allow it to cool, and pour back into the bottle, with the pepper flakes, and store in the fridge. When you use it, you can pour off the top of the bottle if you don't want the pepper flakes in what your making, or shake it up first if you do.
