Pantry Raid Day 17 - Sage pasta

Yeah I know, pasta, burritos, pasta, burritos, but after a long day at the office I can whip this up in 20 minutes and I'm not popping lean cuisines into the microwave.

1. Boil water. Add salt. Add pasta. Cook until al dente.

I had some sage from the farmer's market that I had dried. Air dry for a few days then store in an airtight container. Better than commercially dried.

I chopped 3 sun dried tomatoes and put it in a small bowl with about 1 TBS sage and a good sized pinch of salt. Added about 1/4 cup boiling water to rehydrate the sage and tomatoes.

Sauteed a garlic clove in some olive oil and add the sage and tomatoes. Saute a few minutes and add a little water so it's a light saucy consistency. When the pasta is done, add to saute pan and stir a few minutes so pasta absorbs the sauce. Voila! Dinner in a flash.
