Martha Stewart's One Pot Pasta Meal

Tomatoes and Basil are a perfect match, and pasta is one of my favorite fast dinners to make, at home. This recipe is nothing short of a cooking miracle-- just add pasta, and the rest of the ingredients to a large sauté pan...add water and cook for 9 minutes. You get fast and delicious pasta with a creamy sauce-- without the cream! This recipe is a keeper, for sure.

    onion, thinly sliced

  • 4

    garlic cloves, thinly sliced

  • 1/2

    teaspoon red-pepper flakes (cut to 1/2 if you don't like any kind of heat, but don't leave out as this adds flavor)
