Polish Pasta

Polish Pasta is one of my all time favourite dishes that is just pure joy and addictive comfort food. It will make you feel good any night of the week.

If you want a super easy and quick dish for when you have no time, running late or just want some yummy comfort food to eat in front of the TV, than this is your dish! I learn’t about this recipe when I first moved out of home and was told that they grew up just calling it polish pasta, so the name has stuck with me too.

As a broke twenty something studying, I made this a lot when I was as the ingredients are so cheap to buy. Although this dish has evolved a little with me over the years, it’s still one of my favourite go to dishes when I want something quick, easy, yummy and healthy. It’s also great for leftovers. My only tip for this dish is not to burn the onions and sauerkraut as the burnt taste will go through it & doesn’t go well with the flavours.
