Soul Food Saturday

Good Morning and welcome to the first edition of Soul Foul Saturday! I am so incredibly excited for this new weekly feature and adventure on EMM. For those of you who didn't see the announcement last week, every Saturday my dear friend Bekki will be in the kitchen with you, creating something delicious!

In case you are in new here, let me tell you a little bit about Bekki. She is such a sweetheart, always thinking of others before herself, and willing to help at a moment's notice. She is so incredibly generous to my son, always sending him little treats in the mail, simply to make him smile. We've only known each other for about a year, but I feel like she is a friend I've had all my life. God truly sent me a special gift when he placed Bekki in my life. And now for the secret...Bekki and I have never met in real life! That's right, we met through this blog, and this incredible friendship that I treasure so much, developed. Bekki began as an avid supporter of my blog, and quickly became a blessing in my life, for which I'm so thankful for.

So please join Bekki and I for this new chapter on EMM. I hope you enjoy every word....and bite!

What could feed your soul better than a big bowl of pasta? Not many things in my opinion. My favorite recipes are ones that you can whip up any night of the week, to fill your belly and your heart whenever the need arises. So, kicking off this new Soul food Saturday is a quick recipe that feeds a crowd to the brim! Doubling this recipe won’t take any extra time, and the sauce freezes beautifully. Throw in another box of pasta and you can invite your neighbors over too!

Penne and Pork Ragu
1 tbsp. olive oil
1.25 lb extra lean ground pork
1 c. sweet mini peppers, sliced
1 14.5 oz. can rosemary and oregano diced tomatoes
1 ½ c. Hunt’s no sugar added pasta sauce
1 pound of cooked Penne
In medium pan heat oil and add pork and peppers. Cook until pork is no longer pink, and peppers have softened. About ten minutes. Drain. Add tomatoes and sauce and stir to combine. Allow to cook through until sauce has thickened. About 10-15 minutes stirring often.

Whether you love your pasta combined with your sauce or portioned out later for those who love EXTRA sauce. It’s just as delicious. Grated Parmesan  shredded cheddar, or a little extra oregano finishes it perfect!
