Making A Pasta Dish

Are you a pasta person? Like anything as long as its pasta?

I love pasta, though its not one of the worlds healthiest food, it is such an enjoyable food to eat. Here I made a quick pasta dish. You can do the same at home and throw together what you have into a a pot and mix it in with your pasta and there you go. In mere minutes you have an enjoyably delicious meal.

Follow instructions below for Making the ideal pasta dish

Servings 4
Prep time: 30 minutes
Total time: 1 hour

1lb meat (can be anything from bacon, ground meat, sausage, chicken, seafood, beef, pork)
2-3 cups Green vegetable
1 box Your choice pasta
Your choice sauce as listed below
seasonings: salt, pepper, garlic powder

Ingredients for Basic Sauces:
White wine sauce - 2 cup heavy cream and 1/3 white wine
White cheese sauce - 2 cup heavy cream and 1/4 cup cheddar cheese
Pink sauce - 1 1/2 cup Heavy cream and 1/2 cup tomato sauce
Red wine sauce - 2 cup tomato sauce and 1/4 cup white wine
red sauce - 2 cup tomato sauce

Lets get started, now that you have your meat, your green vegetable and your pasta. Start off by following the instruction on the back of your pasta and boil for the allotted amount of time instructed. Drain and set aside to cool.

Cut your meat into bite sized cubes, Take a big pot and adding a little oil, cook your meat for a few minutes on medium high heat until cooked all the way through and no longer raw. Choose which sauce you want and Add in your sauce ingredients to the pot ( feel free to add or take away from the suggested amounts of sauce to use.) Cook on medium high heat for 10 minutes, mixing once in a while to not stick to pot and get burned.

Lower heat to medium low, add in your seasonings and green vegetables and cook for another 15 minutes or until sauce slightly thickens.

To Serve neatly try plating the pasta first and then using a big spoon, scoop the meat and vegetable sauce on top in the center of your pasta. Mixing the pasta and sauce together into a big bowl before plating at times tends to come out a bit dry and not very saucy.

Note: Pictured above I made a " Crawfish Fettucini Alfredo" For my meat I used crawfish, my green vegetable was broccoli and my sauce was the white cheese sauce.
