one pot pasta!

Originally, the image of all the ingredients in one pot caught my eye on Pinterest – mostly because of the aesthetics. Then I started to think about it. A lot. I finally decided to try this winner from Martha Stewart Living out and honestly, I think I could live off this dish every night for months.

Vegetarian friendly and basically ready in the time it takes your pasta to soak up all the goodness from the ingredients. Try it out. Add as little or as much of the red pepper flakes as you like (or omit). Next time I’ll be using way less for my tastes. The recipe has got a good kick, so if you’re a fan leave it as-is! This recipe makes two large servings.

What you’ll need:
• pasta (linguine or spaghetti are best)
• 1 cup (approx) cherry tomatoes, cut in half
• ½ onion, thinly sliced
• 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
• ¼ teaspoon red-pepper flakes (more or less depending on how much heat you want)
• 2 sprigs basil, plus torn leaves for garnish
• 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
• Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
• Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Ok! Get your veggies prepped + chopped first!

prepped and ready to go!

basil (rinsed + dried), tomatoes, onion, garlic + pasta **I break my pasta in half before boiling**

  • Ok! Next, fill a pan with about 2.5 cups of water (you won’t be draining the water so make sure you don’t over do it!)
  • Add pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, red-pepper flakes, basil, oil + 1 teaspoon salt
  • Bring all the ingredients to a boil over high heat. Boil mixture, stirring until the water is almost all gone (9-10 minutes)

the liquid is starting to cook down – just a little bit longer!

  • Garnish with more basil and add a bit more olive oil if needed
  • Top with freshly grated parm + serve!
