  • Yields: 4 Servings


1 lb spaghetti (or other pasta types)

1 onion, sliced thinly

114 g mushroom

362 g smoked sausage, sliced thinly (any kind would work)

4 garlic cloves, minced

3 fresh tomatoes, cut in wedges

4 1/2 cups water (or chicken stock)

1/2 tsp salt, if using water (if using chicken stock – adjust your salt to taste)


Combine all ingredients into a big pot over medium-high heat. Cover and cook to a boil, about 10 Minutes


Once boiled, continue cooking uncovered until most water evaporates and pasta cooks through, about 10 More Minutes

Keep cooking:

At first it well seem like there is A LOT of water. Don’t be nervous, the water will eventually evaporate. Just keep cooking! Eventually it should evaporate at least half or most of the liquid.

TIP: While pasta is cooking, make sure to stir it occasionally with a wooden spoon so pasta doesn’t stick together. Serve your pasta hot with optional Parmesan cheese on top.

Reader asked:

“… I haven’t tried any cooking classes, because of my busy work schedule, I really can’t find time to learn how to cook better. I tried going online to learn, bought a bunch of books, but what’s in books doesn’t always turns out in reality. Sometimes I can’t find that special ingredient from my local grocery, where I live we carry quite limited items. Could you please share with us easy recipes that I can try immediately? Thank you very much for your help, guys.”

I MADE THIS DISH answered:

The majority of our readers are busy women. AND WE LOVE YOU, OUR BUSY WOMEN! You have a demanding career, lifestyle, and you feel divided between multiple tasks during the day. In short, you have very limited time and the most common phrase we hear from our readers is “I am very busy, I don’t have time to do … X.” Oh I soooo agree! Because I need more time too.

The second commonality among our readers is that the fact that they are busy and time is short, in reality they are very CARING modern women, who wants to learn how to BAKE CAKES for her family, make hot DELICIOUS DINNERS to impress her spouse after a long day at work, they want their kids to happily finish their plate ON THEIR OWN and ask for more.

Their GOAL is so simple: making other people happy, makes them very happy. (How simple and humble is that, right?)

So on your request, we are sharing this amazingly easy pasta dish that has plenty of fresh vegetables, taste great, and you only need ONE POT to cook the whole dinner. Oh… forgot, your dinner is ready as quickly as 20 minutes! (Oh yeahhh! More time to go on facebook … my bad…. More time to go for a walk after dinner)
