One Pot Sausage, Tomato and Basil Pasta
While I know I still have some time before M² arrives, I'm not totally sure I'll find the time to prepare as many meals (if any). So, I've been on the hunt to find tasty, easy meals that I can whip up with an infant and a personified tornado.
Recently I came across this one pot pasta and it immediately went to the When the Baby Comes food list.
It was unbelievably easy to prepare. From start to finish I think the whole meal took 25 minutes to prep and make. Amazing. I need more meals like this in my life.
Did I also mention it's action packed with flavor? And Marcus even ate some of the noodles. Hallelujah!
One Pot Sausage Tomato and Basil Pasta
1 pound of spaghetti (one box)
1 package sausage of your choice - I went with smoked turkey
1 large onion thinly sliced
3 cups halved grape tomoatoes
2 cups fresh basil leaves, loosely packed
4 garlic cloves thinly sliced
Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
How It Comes Together
In a large stock pot over medium-high heat combine spaghetti, sausage, onion, tomatoes, basil, garlic, and 4 1/2 cups water. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Bring pot to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked through and liquid has reduced, about 8-10 minutes.
Stir in Parmesan and serve immediately.
Viola! That's it! Dinner is ready.
