How To Make

  • 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.

    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...
