Found a new recipe!

I got the inspiration for this recipe from one I saw on Facebook. Of course, we made our own variations to it.

Pasta with Sauce

A large handful of uncooked, thin spaghetti, broken in half (12 ounces, give or take?)
1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes with liquid
1 large sweet onion, cut in julienne strips
4 cloves garlic, minced with my garlic press
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or less
2 teaspoons dried oregano
Several leaves of fresh basil, chopped
4 1/2 cups vegetable broth (4 ½ cups warm water, with 4 packets of golden George Washington Broth, and 1 tsp. of McKay‘s Chicken Style Seasoning)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 Worthington Big Franks, sliced
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

We put all the ingredients (except the Parmesan cheese) in to a large stock pot, brought it to a boil, then reduced to a low simmer, with the lid on. We cooked it for about 10 minutes, then removed the lid, and kept cooking till most of the liquid had evaporated, probably another 5-10 minutes.

We served it with fresh, steamed broccoli. Kid approved meal! I think we’ll be trying it again, many times.
