How to make a delicious One Pot Pasta

We love to cook here at the Ranch but sometimes we want something quick and easy but still homemade and fresh.  
We are not crazy about those prepackaged pasta dishes, they have way too much sodium and preservatives.   
So we decided to try a one pot pasta recipe, you know the ones, you throw everything in the pot and then cook it and it comes out perfect. 
What’s easier than this, everything including the uncooked pasta was dropped it our stew pot and cooked for less than 10 minutes.  
This pasta was delicious, popping with great flavor and it was easier than preparing those boxed prepared pastas!

Thanks so much for the wonderful-looking one pot pasta dish! I just have a tiny question, when the dish is all cooked, do you drain off the liquid??? Regards, [email protected]

I love one pot meals! Not having a ton of dishes after dinner sounds amazing to me!
