Real Food, Real Simple: One Pot Tomato Basil Pasta

Tomato Basil Pasta - MAke it ALL in ONE POT!! From WholesomeMommy.com

 One of the biggest request I get is help in getting real food on the table real fast. Every mama needs a few good recipes up her sleeve that they can throw together with almost no effort.  At least once a week {usually more often} I find myself with trying to figure out how to do two things at once – cook dinner and clean the house, or cook dinner and finish a project, or cook dinner and put a puzzle together with my four year old that has been begging.  I’m sure you can relate.  You need to get dinner ready and you just don’t have time to stand around in the kitchen babysitting the stove and a bunch of pots.

That’s what makes this recipe so great! You can make this pasta in one pot {easy clean up} and it practically cooks itself!  As a matter of fact, on the night I took these photos, I threw all the ingredients in the pot and then vacuumed my house while it cooked! :) So, by the time the pasta was cooked my chores were all done, the house was clean, and I had a great belly filling pasta to feed my family.  And the bonus was I didn’t have much clean up – which by that point I was SO. THROUGH. CLEANING.

      You cook the pasta IN the sauce/While the sauce is cooking. That is why it is ONE POT. You throw it all in together.
