One Pot Tomato Basil Pasta

Throw it all in the pot, INCLUDING the uncooked Pasta, and cook! - Bring it to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. 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. Feedback: Too long for the pasta to cook unless you are using a tube pasta... Spag or fettuccine will only take 8 -9 min. Saute onion and other veg. for 4-5 mins, add garlic , saute for a min. Add pasta and then add delicate greens (spinach) for the last min or so. Turn pot off, drizzle with EVOO and parm or pec. romano.

Ingredients

  • 12

    ounces pasta (I used Linguine)

  • 1

    can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes with liquid ( I used zesty red pepper flavor)

  • 1

    large sweet onion, cut in julienne strips

  • 4

    cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 1/2

    teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 2

    teaspoons dried oregano leaves

  • 2

    large sprigs basil, chopped

  • 4 1/2

    cups vegetable broth (regular broth and NOT low sodium)

  • 2

    tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • Parmesan cheese for garnish

Directions

Place pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, in a large stock pot. Pour in vegetable broth. Sprinkle on top the pepper flakes and oregano. Drizzle top with oil. Cover pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer and keep covered and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes or so. Cook until almost all liquid has evaporated – I left about an inch of liquid in the bottom of the pot – but you can reduce as desired . Season to taste with salt and pepper , stirring pasta several times to distribute the liquid in the bottom of the pot. Serve garnished with Parmesan cheese.
