for basil and tomato season!
ONE POT WONDER TOMATO BASIL PASTA
Serves 4 to 6 as an entree
12 ounces linguine pasta
1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes with liquid ( I used zesty red pepper flavor)
1 large sweet onion, cut in julienne strips
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
2 large sprigs basil, chopped
4 1/2 cups vegetable broth (regular broth and NOT low sodium)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Parmesan cheese for garnish
Place pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, in a large stock pot.
Pour in vegetable broth. Sprinkle on top the pepper flakes and oregano.
Drizzle top with oil.
Cover pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer and keep
covered and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes or so.
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 .
Season to taste with salt and pepper , stirring pasta several times
to distribute the liquid in the bottom of the pot. Serve garnished with
