Penne with Organic Sauce

Not particularly a gong-ho advocate of organic goods, vegetables, fruits, etc but in recent years Costco has embraced organic whole hardily.  I don't find anything wrong  with organic except the higher cost at the register.  With today's rising prices on everything I usually defer to the non-organic goods but buying bulk at Costco allows me to purchase organic products at the same price or lower than non-organic at my local grocery store.

There's a lot to be said for quick and simple meals and this spaghetti sauce and meatballs over Penne pasta was easy to put together.  Aidells fully cooked Teriyaki & Pineapple fully cooked meatballs add a great twist to this simple recipe.

Combine all spaghetti sauce ingredients in a large pot:  Marinara Sauce, Organic Stewed Tomatoes, Organic Tomato Paste, and Organic Mushrooms (include liquid).  Tweak the sauce with Crushed Garlic, Italian Seasoning, and Teriyaki Pineapple meatballs.

Bring the sauce to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 40 minutes.  Meanwhile prepare Penne Pasta as per directions on the box.

Serve with a side of salad with your favorite trimmings and garlic bread.  I've always enjoyed the garlic bread from my local grocery but I wanted to use demi baguettes I had on hand.  Found that I could buy my grocery store's garlic spread so rather than mix my own I used theirs and added shredded Parmesan Cheese to it.  Like I said ... easy-peasy!! ... Enjoy
