Makes: 4 servings
Duration: 35 minutes

Ingredients
• 28oz can of whole peeled tomatoes
• 12 oz of pasta (any shape and or kind)
• 12 oz of jarred roasted red peppers (chopped)
• 5-6 tbsp of cannabis infused olive oil
• 5 cups of spinach
• 1 cup of cooking onions (chopped and peeled)
• 2 yellow squash (diced)
• 2 zucchini (diced)
• 2 cloves of garlic
• 3 tsp mushroom powder
• 2 tbsp of tomato paste
• ½ tsp of oregano (dry)
• ¼ teaspoon of red pepper (flakes)
• 4 basil leaves (fresh)
• ½ tsp salt
• ½ tsp pepper
• parmesan cheese to garnish

Tools
• 1 large pot
• 1 large saucepan
• 1 strainer
• 1 spatula
• 1 large spoon

Instructions

  1. Pour the cannabis infused oil into a saucepan and set the burner to medium heat.
  2. Once the oil warms, add in onion, zucchini, garlic, oregano, squash, red pepper flakes and salt.
  3. Give the ingredients a gentle stir and cook until soft. This may take anywhere from 5-10 minutes.
  4. Now add the jar peppers, mushroom powder, pepper and tomato to the mixture, then combine all ingredients together.
  5. Cook the sauce for an additional 10 minutes and be sure to cut up the tomato chunks as they soften to get a small amount in each bite.
  6. As the sauce cooks, begin to prepare the pasta. Place the noodles in a large pot filled with water and follow the directions on the side of the package.
  7. Strain the pasta and rinse the noodles under lukewarm water to prevent sticking.
  8. Cover the noodles in a hearty portion of veggie sauce and serve while fresh and piping hot for the best flavor. Garnish with additions like cannabis infused cheese, parmesan cheese or other spices that you might enjoy.
