Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

You’ll Need
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 1 ½ cups thinly-sliced onion
– 4 cloves garlic, thinly-sliced
– ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
– 1 pound spaghetti
– 3 cups halved grape tomatoes
– 2 cups loosely-packed fresh basil leaves
– 4 ½ cups water
– 2 links (11 ounces) smoked andouille sausage, thinly-sliced
– Freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
– 1 cup grated Parmesan

How To

  1. Sauté the onion and garlic in olive oil in a large pot with a lid.
  2. Add the salt, spaghetti, tomatoes, basil, water and sausage, and bring to a boil.
  3. Turn the heat down to low, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes, until the spaghetti is al dente. The water will evaporate and be absorbed by the pasta.
  4. Stir in the Parmesan and season with pepper to taste.

So simple, and yet it looks SO incredible! What do you think? Are they any sausage-alternatives you’d like to use in this recipe instead?
