Friday Night Pasta

I am sure could come up with a more clever title to tonight's post but I can barely believe I even made dinner. This week my co-worker was on a much-deserved vacation.  That left me to do her job and mine. Dear God. I feel like I should buy her flowers on Monday welcoming her back. When I got home tonight I had a Vodka Gimlet, thank you Chris, and stood in front of the refrigerator and decided what to make for dinner. There was leftover grilled zucchini and sausage from last night. There were some sliced salami and a small zucchini. The recipe came together quickly.

I diced an onion and sliced the small zucchini. The saute pan was heated up with olive oil and the onion and zucchini were added. I seasoned the pan with salt and pepper. I added a knob of butter, and about a 1/4 of a cup of white wine. Next, I tossed in sliced salami and the grilled zucchini and sausage. I added chopped fresh parsley and fresh oregano.

Meanwhile the homemade, yes homemade, pasta was cooking in salted water. Disclaimer: I made pasta on Sunday and froze it!

I added the cooked pasta to the saute pan along with about 3/4 of pasta water. Some cheese, crushed red pepper. Adjusted the salt and pepper.

We had a hit. It was delicious. The sauce was just spicy enough. All we needed to add was a couple of glasses of wine.

Happy Friday!
