I was thinking about what to eat the other night when I realized that my freezer was full, my pantry was stocked and yet, I couldn’t think of a single thing to make. So I improvised this tasty little dinner, and it wasn’t bad at all, if I do say so myself. And Colin kept opening up his trap, insisting “Mouth?” for me to shovel in large bites, so I guess he liked it well enough. It’s even better the next day.
I was using what I had on hand, but if you are looking to add a vegetable beyond the tomatoes, then I would say add some spinach. That would be yummy.
If you are trying to thin out your pantry and freezer, this is a good way to start: Quinoa with Garlic Chicken Sausage and Mozzarella.
1 Cup Quinoa
2 links of Roast Garlic Chicken Sausage
1 can diced tomatoes
1/4 cup of Ciliegne mozzarella balls
*Balsamic Glaze optional (but darn tasty)
In a heated pan, sautee cut sausage links. Cook Quinoa according to package, cutting out 1/2 liquid and substituting diced tomatoes with juices.
Once cooked, combine sausage, quinoa and add mozzarella to top. Garnish with balsamic glaze. Salt and pepper to taste.
