One Pot Pasta with Andouille Sausage

Ever have one of those days where you get caught up in whatever you're doing and you completely forget about what you're going to cook for dinner...and your hungry family will be home any minute? I had one of those days this week. After sitting in our office blogging and marketing for Scentsy most of the day, I received a text from Hubby, "Are you cooking dinner tonight?" Then is when I realized, I had nothing started or planned for that matter. 
This One Pot Pasta was so helpful that day. It was ready in under 30 minutes and was a huge hit.  It makes the house smell delicious, but it doesn't look very appetizing when its in the pot. Give it a chance though, the flavors of the sausage blend beautifully with the basil and parmesan cheese.

1 pound spaghetti
1 (12oz) package smoked Andouille Sausage
1 large onion
1 pint grape tomatoes
2 cups basil leaves
4 cloves garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup grated or shaved parmesan cheese

In a large stockpot bring 5 cups water to a boil.

Slice grape tomatoes in half, lengthwise.

Thinly slice Andouille sausage.

Thinly slice large onion and garlic cloves.

Add all the ingredients to the water.

Cover and cook on a low boil until most of
the water is absorbed. Add the parmesan
cheese and stir. The extra water and cheese combines
to make a delicious creamy sauce.
