Quick Pizza Pasta

With all the restrictions with which we live daily, it is really rather difficult to find meals which can be thrown together with minimal effort and time. Here's one.

Quick and Easy Pizza Pasta
Sauce:
1- 6 oz can tomato paste
6 oz water
2 tablespoons safe oil (I use EVOO)
2 teaspoons Italian spice mix (I used 1/4 tsp each crushed rosemary, thyme, oregano and basil)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon safe vinegar
pinch cayenne pepper
Mix all ingredients well together and set aside.

1 package (8 oz) small pasta (I tend to use quinoa macaroni elbows)
1/2 can large black olives, quartered
6 large fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/2 bunch spring onions, chopped
1/2 pound Italian sausage
OR
12 slices pepperoni, quartered
OR
cubed ham, to taste
nutritional yeast (optional)

Cook your pasta according to package directions. While it's cooking, and if using, brown and drain your Italian sausage. Drain your pasta. Mix all ingredients, including sauce, together well over low heat for about a minute (just to heat). Sprinkle with nutritional yeast, if desired, and serve.

EDITED: So, I was re-reading this and realized I forgot my "secret" ingredients for the pizza sauce. They're there now.
