ONE PAN PASTA
I found this recipe a few years ago and it’s so fun; it’s the essence of summer and
simplicity. To serve 4, you’ll need:
1 Lb. linguine
1 Lb. cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half
1 sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 tsp. red pepper flakes or to taste
4 – 6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 -3 sprigs basil plus leaves for garnish
3 Tb. olive oil plus more for serving
Salt and pepper to taste
4 ½ C. water
Freshly grated Parmesan for serving
Combine all of the above ingredients except the Parmesan in a large straight sided
skillet. Bring to a boil, turn it down to a simmer, then stir and turn the mixture
with tongs. It’s done when the pasta is al dente and the water has almost
evaporated, about 9 minutes. Season the pasta with the salt and pepper, top with
the grated Parm, and serve. A delicious dinner in 15 minutes!
