Pasta Sauce to make you Hoppy! w/ Elk Sausage
My inspiration for this dish came from the blog The Ruling Glass although I have altered the recipe extensively. If you remove the Elk Sausage (or any meat you like) then this dish is completely Vegan friendly. I just happened to have elk sausage and I like meat.
This recipe will make a ton of sauce so be ready to have a group over or have freezer containers ready.
1 Head of garlic pealed and diced
Olive Oil (preferably extra virgin)
2 Cans of diced tomato 24-28oz
2 small cans of tomato paste
1/2 a Zucchini
Mushrooms around a dozen
1 or 2 Onions (I used 1)
1/2 to 1 Green and Red Pepper
Optional 2 or more Elk Sausage (Or any other Meat)
Red Chilli Pepper Flakes
650ml bottle of a double India Pale Ale (Fat Tug IPA – Driftwood Brewing) (half for food half for you!)
Between My Girlfriend, a Friend and I we all agreed this tasted awesome! The Double IPA really adds an earthy and herbal flavour to the Pasta sauce with compliments the Vegetables and spices well. I found the Elk Sausage at a Butcher Shop in the Vancouver East Village near Hastings and Nanaimo. It is called Rio Friendly Meats.
