One-Pan Pasta

We made this Martha Stewart recipe last night, and I must admit I was skeptical about it. It just seemed like the ingredients would be too simple to make a flavourful dish but it turned out a huge hit at our place. It literally took me 15 minutes to make a dinner that everyone enjoyed! 

Just throw everything in one pot, boil and.....

dinner is served! 

It really doesn't get any easier than this. 


12 ounces linguine
12 ounces cherry or grape tomatoes, halved (I used diced)
1 onion, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
2 sprigs of basil, plus torn leaves for garnish
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
course salt and freshly ground pepper
4 1/2 cups of water (I used vegetable broth)

Freshly grated Parmesan cheese for serving.


Combine pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, basil, oil, 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper and veggie broth in a large pot. Bring to a boil over high heat. Continue to boil until pasta is al dente, or the broth is nearly evaporated. REMEMBER to stir often (every 2 minutes or so), so the noodles don't stick together. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with basil, more oil if needed and Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!  - Alex
