Pinterest Test Kitchen- One Pot Tomato Basil Pasta

From Apron Strings
So, our family has been in a dinner rut lately.  We have been busy, trying to save money, and making some kinda lame dinners.  I don't like this.  I have been looking for some new dinner recipes, and happened upon this one from the blog Apron Strings.  It's a simple tomato basil pasta, but everything cooks all in the same pot, all at the same time.  The ingredients are simple, and lots of things you already have on hand.  We added some French bread, and made a quick, easy, healthy and yummy dinner!
If you like a thick tomato sauce, this is probably not for you.  You could certainly add tomato sauce to it, but I really don't even think you need it.  With the tomatoes and basil (and plenty of salt and pepper), it's flavorful and since you use a vegetable stock (I actually used chicken stock and it was great) to cook everything in, even the pasta is seasoned well. 
It's no rich, delicious, heavy, cheesy Italian dinner, but it's good for a light pasta meal!  My girls ate it right up since they love spaghetti.  It was quick, easy, and healthy, and I'm thinking we'll make it again!
