Italian One Pot Dinner

This dinner is great.  It took me about 20 minutes from start to finish, which is great after working all day!  I'm sure Matt's favorite part about this dinner was that he only had to clean one pot!  Literally everything in this dish is thrown into a pot and cooks for about 10 minutes.  Excellent!

Italian One Pot Dinner

Ingredients:
2 cups chicken broth (or vegetable to make it vegetarian)
2 Tbsp. olive oil
10 oz. fettuccine (I used spinach fettuccine, but you can use regular or whole wheat)
1 box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes, undrained!
1 medium onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 Tbsp. dried basil
1/2 Tbsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 oz. asiago cheese, optional

Preparation: 
Over high heat, add all ingredients to pot, making sure to break fettuccine up, so it can be easily submerged.
Make sure all ingredients are submerged, place a lid on top of pot.  Allow liquid to come to a rolling boil, then remove lid and turn the heat to medium.
Allow for boiling to continue, without lid, for 10 minutes, stirring every few minutes.
After 10 minutes, remove from heat and sprinkle each portion with fresh asiago cheese.
Enjoy!
