Stove Top


12 oz
pasta of choice (i like angel hair, others have used linguini)
1 can(s)
(15 oz.) diced tomatoes with liquid (try zesty or with extra spices...)
1 large
sweet onion, cut into julienne strips
4 clove
garlic, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp
red pepper flakes
2 tsp
dried oregano
2 sprig(s)
(large sprigs) of fresh basil, chopped
4 1/2 c
vegetable broth (not low sodium)
1 Tbsp
parmesan cheese, for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

Place pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, & basil in a large stock pot. Pour in the vegetable broth. Sprinkle on the red pepper flakes and oregano. Drizzle with EVOO.
Cover pot & bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer (keeping covered) and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir every 2 minutes or so. Cook until almost all the liquid is cooked away (altho, as long as the pasta is cooked, you could leave more liquid as a sauce. Or cook until almost all the liquid is gone. Up to you...!)
Season to taste with salt & pepper. Stir before serving to distribute the remaining liquid.
Options: I have seen comments where people were going to try this with fresh spinich and shrimp. I don't like shrimp, I am thinking of chicken. May use this dish as a side to chicken or pork chops...
