This is a very quick and simple recipe with peas and a cheesy tomato sauce. My mom and grandmother used to make this for us when I was small. Serve with a loaf of bread and a salad, if desired.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 onions, chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
- 2 cups water
- 2 (8 ounce) cans peas, with liquid
- 1 (16 ounce) package elbow macaroni
- 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; saute onion for about 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper, tomato sauce and water; bring mixture to a boil and add peas; reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
Stir cooked pasta and cheese into tomato sauce mixture. Cover pan and turn off heat; let stand for 20 minutes.
