My changes to the original:

Strait side skillet changed to a 3 quart pot:
Why? I didn't have a large enough skillet

Linguine changed to Cavatappi
Why? I need a short pasta to fit in the pot. This one had the same cook time as Linguinie

Changed basil to rosemary
Because I think rosemary goes well with pork.

Added ground pork .75 lbs
I hoped that the starch from the pasta would blend with the pork fat and leave a rich coating on the pasta.

Results: Bland Soup
This did not work. :(

I think using a pot instead of a skillet was a problem. Without a large surface area the tomatoes and onions were not in contact with the pan. They were bland, boiled and barely cooked.

Adding the pork was good. I'm glad I did because that was the only thing that gave the pasta water some flavor
