Blow Your MIND Tomato Basil Pasta!

Original recipe found on Facebook via Simply The Best You...Healthy and Happy

Throw it all in one pot, INCLUDING the uncooked Pasta and cook!  The starch leaches out of the pasta and makes a rich, warm sauce for the noodles. The other ingredients cook right along with the pasta.
