One Pot Pasta From Martha Stewart

I visited our local farmer's market for the first time this summer in search of fresh tomatoes, and as is often the case, I came home with more than tomatoes. In fact, I picked up some fresh ingredients for this one pot pasta dish. I first saw the recipe in Martha Stewart Living Magazine while in the doctor's office waiting room. I later looked it up online and decided I had to try it. It is soooo delicious and easy. Really, all it takes is one pan. How easy!



One Pot Pasta

Ingredients:

12 ounces linguine (I used spaghetti)
12 ounces cherry or grape tomatoes, halved or quartered if large
1 onion, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes (the original recipe calls for a 1/2 tsp, but I thought that was too spicy)
2 sprigs basil, plus torn leaves for garnish
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
4 1/2 cups water
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese, for serving

Preparation: 

Combine pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, red-pepper flakes, basil, oil, 2 teaspoons salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and water in a large straight-sided skillet. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil mixture, stirring and turning pasta frequently with tongs, until pasta is al dente and water has nearly evaporated, about 9 minutes.

Season to taste with salt and pepper, divide among 4 bowls, and garnish with basil. Serve with oil and Parmesan.
