Are you ready for how easy this is?
In a large pan or pot, add the chicken broth and water.
Toss in the garlic, onion, tomatoes, squash, pasta, basil and sausage.
Add some salt and a few cracks of pepper.
Don’t want sausage? Add some shredded rotisserie chicken.
Don’t want meat, that is fine too.
Want more veggies? Go for it!
Stir is up and put it on a burner over high and bring to a boil.
Once it boils move it to simmer. Let it simmer for 8-10 minutes uncovered.
Seriously, that is it.
When the water is gone, stir and dinner is almost ready to be served.
Top with the cheese.
Add more if you want.
I promise you, deciding if you want more cheese is the hardest part of this recipe!
Stir to melt the cheese. The pasta is “al dente” perfection!
We served this with warm buttered bread.
This is perfect for lunch or dinner. Homeschool mama’s will love this! I know we did! This is a hot meal and it is done… pronto!
