I have seen this recipe all over
internet-land for a year now.
I disbelieved this recipe.
I was a non-believer.
ONE POT...ONE POT!!! could deliver a delicious meal
IN UNDER 30 MINUTES??
I was wrong to question.
But dude...you gotta be quick with this meal!! It cooks quickly all together in this pot....like real quick!
in half an hour, they mean it!
Many people have posted this recipe with everything from spaghetti to other fancy-pants pasta. I used whole wheat linguine.
Fresh basil is a must!
Throw everything into a pot!
Dudes, how easy is that!!
Don't forget the salt and pepper!
It looks like a crapload, but it wasn't.
Don't forget the 4 1/2 cups water!!!
Bring to a boil and reduce the heat.....
simmer uncovered until pasta is cooked through
and liquid has reduced...maybe 8-10 minutes.
Stir the pasta a few times, otherwise this dish cooks so fast, the pasta will stick to the bottom of the pan.
And here ya go,
supper ready in 30 minutes!!!!
The parm, the parm!!!
Gently stir that yummy,
salty cheese into the pasta.....
Okay, now you can scoop up a dish....
Don't be shy, because you're going to go back for seconds. Guaranteed!
This pasta dish is creamy from the linguine cooking in
the liquid and releasing it's starches,
it is savory from the andouille sausage,
the tomatoes bring almost a sweet element,
and the basil pulls it all together.
Here's the recipe.
This recipe has been on so many sites, I'm not certain where to credit.

so I will quickly show you a couple pictures of some visitors close to the property the last day or two...
sca-reeeeeching while talking to each other.
And look at these bucolic sheep in
Marvin Miller's bean field from last night....
Oh hello there, you little personality filled,
cutie patootie!! I love you too!!
You won't nibble my face off, will you?
And lastly, here is Tim, explaining to Angie that the lead sheep there, in the middle of the field, wears a bell around it's neck and all the other sheep will follow the lead sheep.
That's how the sheep owner knows where all his sheep are.
Angie had never heard of this before.
This was completely new information to her.
Angie be like
That was almost too much for Angie's pea brain to process after a long work day and she had so many other questions of course:
Is there always a lead sheep?
Is it usually a girl or boy?
How do you decide the lead sheep?
What is that based on, what qualities must a lead sheep have?
Does he/she know they're the leader?
Is that annoying to them, to have a bell around their neck?
Are cows the same way?
What if you pick the wrong leader and they all end up in Vegas?
See, so many questions.
Tim just stared at Angie.
It became apparent Angie's questions were not going to get answered that evening.
So Angie and Tim called it a night and went inside and ate homemade chicken noodle soup.
Now THAT Angie could wrap her head around.
Looks like it's gonna be another beautiful Fall day here as long as the rains stays away.
Have a good one today, guys!
Talk at ya soon!
