The other evening I came home from work and looked in the cabinet and frig for something to make for supper. I ended up with this "kitchen sink" dish...it has just about everything but the kitchen sink tossed in one pot. It looks really orange in these photos, but it wasn't. I took the photos while it was on the stove top cooking.
First I brought a pot of water to a boil
and tossed in a pound package of small elbow macaroni.
I also added some(couple cups each) frozen corn
and frozen carrots to the macaroni.
After the macaroni, corn and carrots were cooked I added:
Can of mushrooms
Two cans of diced tomatoes
Can of tomato sauce
Can of green beans
Couple of chopped jalapeno peppers
Four chopped smoked sausage hot dogs
Simmer until all the flavors marry together. Stir often!
Yup, I filled an entire dutch oven type pot full of yummy!
My husband thought it was really good, but that may be that he ususally does the cooking at our house. This is one of those dishes you can make in less than an hour and eat for DAYS! You can add anything that might be in your cabinet or refrigerator to this one pot meal.
