"Kitchen Sink" Supper

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" 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
Chopped onion
Garlic powder
Couple of chopped jalapeno peppers
Black pepper
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.


  1. This reminds me of the "goulash" I used to make using hamburger and sausage. I loved it! You've reminded me - now I may just have to make it!

  2. I love doing stuff like this. Unfortunately I think I'm the ONLY one in my house who does.

  3. Seriously, after looking at these pictures I had to go eat. I love this kind of food - it looks like home to me. I'm going to try something similar tonight.

  4. I do something like this too! I call it Kitchen Sink Pasta and I combine a jar of sauce and pasta with just about anything and everything I have on hand. So easy and yummy!
