Jamie Oliver's Pregnant Jool's Pasta

I'm guessing this was a recipe Jamie's wife liked when she was pregnant.  Seemed appropriate for me to try it out this week, since I'm 39 weeks pregnant! (Obviously I wrote this post a few weeks ago... just getting around to posting it now!)

PREGNANT JOOL'S PASTA (adapted from Jamie Oliver's Meals in Minutes)
4 green onions, diced
1 carrot, finely diced
1 celery stalk, diced
1-2 chilies, seeded and diced
1 pkg. ground Italian sausage
1 tsp. oregano
4 garlic cloves
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
14 oz. can diced tomatoes
penne noodles, cooked according to package

Heat some olive oil in a frying pan.  Add veggies, sausage, oregano, and garlic and cook till sausage is browned.  Add balsamic vinegar and tomatoes.  Add a little bit of the pasta water if necessary.  Stir in cooked pasta and garnish with grated Parmesan and basil if you like.
Super yummy pasta!

FENNEL & RADISH SALAD (from Jamie Oliver)
2 bulbs of fennel
1 bunch of radishes
juice of 1 lemon
olive oil
salt & pepper

Use a mandolin to finely slice fennel and radishes.  Toss with lemon juice and olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.
This was a nice fresh salad - I was quite pleased with it!
Pin It!
