one pot wonder pasta

I used a chicken fryer pan so I wouldn't have to break the pasta while it cooked. It turned out amazing! The starch in the pasta made the sauce creamy. I have used this method of cooking pasta for almost everything. Add chicken or shrimp, other vegetables, a different broth, different flavorings. It has been really fun using my imagination. And every one of them was delicious.

How To Make one pot wonder pasta

  • 1
    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.
  • 2
    Cover pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer and keep covered. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes or so. Be sure to separate the pasta while cooking, as it can stick together easily. Cook until almost all the liquid has evaporated, or reduce as desired.
