This delicious pasta dish is ready in just 30 minutes and the pasta cooks in the skillet!

The best pasta dishes to make are those that can be made in one pot. It’s so simple to make, and aside from a cutting board for some preparation work, you only need one skillet. That’s it. If you’re like me, then having fewer dirty dishes in your house is always welcome.

This pasta dish is one of the many one-pot wonders. The pasta is cooked in a skillet after a simple saute with smoked andouille and a few diced tomatoes.

The pasta will soak up the liquid, so you don’t have to worry about a soggy mess. This pasta is cheesy and comforting, with the perfect texture.
