Pasta, Tomatoes, Veggie Broth, Olive Oil, & Seasoning


Throw it all in the pot, INCLUDING the uncooked pasta, and cook! The starch leaches out of the pasta and makes a rich, warm sauce for the noodles.

  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 large sprigs basil, chopped
  • 4 1/2 cups vegetable broth (regular broth and NOT low sodium)

Step 1

Place pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic and 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.
