Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: DAY 2 Continued…
After frying up half of the mixture I decided to call it quits on falafel making for the day and I turned my attention to pasta and sauce.
After my water began to boil in went the whole wheat pasta. Generally speaking, for my tastes I use a little sea salt and extra virgin olive oil in the water I boil my pastas in. There was no exception here.
See that the pasta gave in to the hot bath and under they went. I let them find out about the heat and olive oil for about 7 more minutes until they were pretty much al dente. They were strained and placed in a bowl to hold them while I washed out the pot to prepare it for the sauce.
Once cleaned in went one jar of “Traditional Marinara Sauce” with some cayenne pepper, and several shakes of red chili flakes.
Keeping in mind that I didn’t want to have any meat in my pasta as I normally would, I let the sauce heat up before adding the pasta to it.
This had to be put in a bowl and devoured as my metabolism was in high gear by this point. I gazed at the chunks of tomato in the pasta and yearned for ground turkey meatballs. 😦 Once I grabbed a bowl and let the pasta stay on a low flame for a few moments longer I began to dish up.
I topped my pasta with a piece of my fried falafel and concluded matters. This meal was so good I’ll definitely have to have this listed as a great vegan alternative to my usual “5 Alarm Five Star Pasta and Meatballs. Well that concluded Day 2. Stay tuned for Day 3 of My Detox and Nutrition week.
