I threw together a quick and tasty pasta dish because I forgot about today's post. With us buying a house my mind has been all over the place and not really focused on Recipes have sporadically been scheduled by me and I have been missing dates that I have to quickly fill in with posts like this. Meals that I do not think about at all. Meals that are made on the spot with whatever may be lurking in our refrigerator. This one was pretty darn great, especially for being made in less than a half hour. I hope you enjoy!

8 oz pork linguica (sliced)
Parmesan reggiano (freshly grated)
2 tbsp fresh basil (diced)
2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 14.5 oz can fire-roasted tomatoes
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 cup Bella mushrooms (sliced)
1 2.25 oz can of slices black olives
1/4 tsp ground oregano
3 tsp brown sugar
kosher salt (to taste)
fresh crack pepper (to taste)
Pasta of your choice

In a large skillet heat to medium high heat. Add sliced linguica and cook for 7 minutes or until both sides are browned. Remove the linguica and site aside.

Now heat olive oil in skillet making sure to scrap the bottom of the skillet using a wooden spatula. Saute garlic in oil until golden (3-5 min,) add the rest of the ingredients (except Parmesan Reggiano and basil,) bring to simmer and let cooking for 10 minutes stirring frequently. Add the basil and Linguica to the sauce and let simmer for an additional 5 minutes.

Prepare your desired pasta while the sauce is simmering.

Spoon sauce over pasta and top with 1-2 tsp of Parmesan Reggiano. Serve hot!
