pinch tips: How to Chop an Onion Perfectly


12 oz
linguine pasta
1 can(s)
diced tomatoes with liquid
1 large
sweet onion, cut in julienne strips
4 clove
garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp
red pepper flakes
2 tsp
ried oregano leaves
2 large
sprigs basil, chopped
4 1/2 c
vegetable broth (regular broth and not low sodium)
2 Tbsp
extra virgin olive oil
parmesan cheese for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

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.

About how much does this make? I normally have to double or triple recipes since I have to feed about 15 people, but I don't want to have way too much
