pasta, dinner dishes
This one pot pasta dish is a perfect family meal!
  • 1 lb penne pasta (We used Barilla® Pronto™ which we found at Kroger)
  • 12 oz (give or take) of chicken sausage, cut into rounds
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 medium sized, fresh tomatoes, diced
  • 2 c fresh basil, roughly chopped
  • 2 fresh squash, cut into rounds
  • 32 oz chicken broth
  • ½ c water
  • kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  1. 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. 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. When the water is gone, stir and dinner is almost ready to be served. Top with the cheese.
