Ingredients

  • 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

How to Make Tomato Basil Pasta (one pot)

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. 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...!)
  3. Season to taste with salt & pepper. Stir before serving to distribute the remaining liquid.
  4. 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...
