One pot pasta

I've seen this dish all over Pinterest and in magazines but had yet to try it until this past weekend when it was late and we were looking for something quick and easy to make for dinner. Martha Stewart even has a famous variation. I based mine on the recipe from Damn Delicious. The best part about this recipe (for me anyway) is you truly dump everything into a pot and cook. So easy!! It's not the most delicious pasta I've ever had but it's really simple, fresh tasting and oh so easy. The perfect busy weeknight meal!!

One Pot Pasta
1 lb linguine noodles
1 12 oz package andouille sausage, thinly sliced (I used Aidelle's)
1 large onion, thinly sliced
3 cups cherry tomatoes cut into fourths (or eights depending on how big)
2 cups fresh basil leaves, loosely packed
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper to taste
1 cup parmesan
3 1/2 cups water
1 cup chicken broth

In a large stockpot over medium high heat, combine noodles, sausage, onion, tomatoes, basil, garlic, water and broth. Season with salt and pepper (you may want to do this again after). Bring water to a boil, reduce heat and simmer (uncovered) until pasta is cooked and all the liquid has reduced (about 10 mins or so). Stir in parmesan and add more salt and pepper depending on how you like it. Serve! (I topped mine with more salt/pepper and parm.
