One Pot Wonder Pasta Dinner


• 1 (1-pound box, or 16 oz) spaghetti or thin linguine
• 12 oz (1 pint) cherry or grape tomatoes
• 1 large sweet onion, cut in half and then sliced thin
• 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced or minced
• 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
• 2 large sprigs basil, chopped (about ¼ cup)
• 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil plus more for drizzling
• 4 cups chicken broth
• 1 teaspoon sea salt
• 1 teaspoon pepper
• Grated Parmesan cheese for topping


1. In a large stock pot, place pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, basil, olive oil, chicken broth, salt and pepper. 

2. Cover pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and turn mixture frequently until pasta is al dente and liquid has almost evaporated. Pasta should be done in 9-12 minutes, depending on the size of your pasta. 

3. If desired, when plated drizzle a little extra virgin olive over pasta and garnished with fresh grated parmesan cheese and basil leaf.

Serves 4-6 entrée-size portions


If you prefer the taste of sautéed onions over raw, sauté the onions and garlic first and then add them to the rest of the ingredients in the pot. You can also add a pinch of fresh oregano along with the basil if you have it on hand.
