Ravioli and Sausage Stew
This was really delicious and took about 2 seconds to put together.
1/4 very large onion, finely chopped
2 Tofurky Italian sausages, chopped
1/2 red pepper, finely chopped
3-4 c veggie broth
1 14 oz can Italian style tomatoes, undrained
1 9 0z package mini ravioli
3 oz baby spinach
Brown onion in some olive oil. (Does anyone remember the Frugal Gourmet? I can still hear him - "hot pan, cold oil, food won't stick......." It is true!) Add sausage and brown. Add red pepper and cook a few more minutes. Add broth and tomatoes. Simmer for as long as you feel like, so the flavors blend. Add ravioli and spinach. Cook 5 minutes and serve. (If your pasta requires longer than 5 minutes, add spinach a little later so it doesn't overcook.)
I really love these sausages. They are so flavorful that no additional seasoning was needed for the stew. Also they have a lovely texture. They are pretty high in fat - I rinsed them off before chopping, with no loss of flavor. Yum!
