Tomato Dijon Pasta


For this pasta dish I whipped together a sauce that is a bit out of the ordinary for a pasta sauce. It was an experiment of throwing some ingredients together and it turned out pretty darn good. I used my favorite veggie pasta, but any pasta will work for this dish. I also used green beans to add a fresh crunch to the dish.

Ingredients: (serves 2-3)

2 Cups cooked pasta

2 Cups fresh green beans, cut into 1 inch pieces

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

2 Teaspoons Dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 Tablespoons olive oil

3 Tablespoons Pasta Sauce

Cook pasta and set aside. In a medium non stick sauce pan, sautee green beans with salt and pepper until bright green and slightly crispy.

While that is cooking, prepare sauce. In a small bowl whisk together mustard, cinnamon, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and olive oil.

Add sauce to green beans and allow to simmer for a few minutes. Add pasta and toss.

Add pasta sauce to pan and mix in. Allow it to come to a simmer.

Serve sprinkled with your favorite Parmesan cheese.

I have the passion to bake and love trying new recipes! I work at a school for children with disabilities as a manager of a cafe. This cafe allows the students learn the ability to work with the public and in the near future I am going to be able to bake with the students and let them learn about the love and passion there is to baking. :) I prefer baking over cooking although I do love to cook as well. I hardly ever repeat a recipe. I love my family, dogs, friends, and job. One day I will have my own bakery and I can not wait. Until then I am going to continue baking my little heart out.
