Ziti with Spicy Tomato Sauce


Last night for dinner we had Ziti, Artichokes, and Olives with Spicy Tomato Sauce from Vegan Planet. This was very good, but not really something that I needed a recipe for. Actually, it was quite similar to something I made a while back. It was however, very tasty, and very quick to come together. It really only took the amount of time it takes for water to boil and pasta to cook. Don't you just love it when a good meal comes together in under 30 minutes!!??

My only substitution was rigatoni for the ziti.....they never have ziti at my grocery store. Otherwise, I followed the recipe to the letter. Oh, I did put a sprinkle of Vegan Parmesan Topping on it. This recipe does lend itself to a zillion different add-ins though. Really, you could throw in just about anything you need to use up. Some chopped greens would be nice, or some sauteed mushrooms. Capers would have been delish, and even some bell pepper would have been nice. Anything, really. Go try it.

That's funny, our store never has the Rigatoni, only the ziti!! We should trade.

Yum, that does look tasty.

Sometimes, even if I don't use the recipe, I like to have one handy for inspiration or "permission" that the ingredients will be good together, ykwim?
