Poor Man's Fra Diavolo with whole grain pasta
The most labor intensive thing you'll have to do in this recipe is dice the onion. Bascially, if you can boil water and use a can opener, you're good to go.
This is not for the faint of heart or weak of tongue...this is intensely flavored food that will make your mouth stand up and take notice. It is also sauce heavy cause growing up with the Sicilian-American side of my family, we liked a lot of Italian gravy to sop up with bread at the bottom of the bowl. Please feel free to adjust any of the seasonings or amount of ingredients to your taste.
Using what is in the cupboard to stave off pizza craving. Whole grain pasta and INTENSE seasonings to make this sing on my tongue and not even think about pizza. I top it with reduced fat swiss and parmesean cheese and extra black and red pepper. Not only does the flavor help offset the pizza craving, but if you're like me, you crave fat rich foods when your body needs omega-3s; the mackerel is a very rich source of that and will soothe the fat-hungry monster.
