Tomato Basil Pasta- No Straining, just Stirring
Throw it all in the pot, INCLUDING the uncooked Pasta, and cook! – Bring it to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. The starch leaches out of the pasta and makes a rich, warm sauce for the noodles. The other ingredients cook right along with the pasta Ingredients
Recipe type: Dinner
  • 12 ounces pasta (I use whole grain Linguine)
  • 1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes with liquid
  • 1 large sweet onion, cut in julienne strips
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
  • 2 large sprigs basil, chopped
  • 4½ cups vegetable broth (low sodium)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Parmesan cheese for garnish, optional
  1. Place pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, in a large stock pot.
  2. Pour in vegetable broth.
  3. Sprinkle on top the pepper flakes and oregano.
  4. Drizzle top with oil.
  5. Cover pot and bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce to a low simmer and keep covered and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes or so.
  7. Cook until almost all liquid has evaporated – I left about an inch of liquid in the bottom of the pot – but you can reduce as desired .
  8. Season to taste with salt and pepper, stirring pasta several times to distribute the liquid in the bottom of the pot.
  9. Serve garnished with Parmesan cheese.
