One-Pan Pasta

Martha, Martha, Martha.  You genius, you. Image


If you’re anything like me, you look for recipes online.  Well, this recipe has seriously been EVERYWHERE on the Internet.  I have seen it on so many blogs that I just had to finally try it out!  Martha Stewart knows her stuff, so I assumed it must work out okay.  I was certainly skeptical because this is, as the title says, all cooked in one pan and it’s ready to eat.  Wait…don’t you usually drain a lot of water?  Nope nope nope.  Believe me.  Martha Stewart figured this one out!  Of course I take ZERO credit for this dish, but I want to show you how simple it is! Image

One-Pan Pasta 

From Martha Stewart

Serves 4


12 oz linguine

12 oz grape tomatoes, cut in half

1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced

4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (I may have used a Tbsp—if you want lots of spice!)

4 sprigs basil, plus more for garnish

2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper

4 1/2 cups water

Parmesan cheese for serving


Combine pasta, tomatoes, onions, garlic, basil, red pepper flakes, oil, pinch of salt and pepper, and water into a large, straight-sided skillet.  Bring to a boil over high heat.  Boil mixture, stir continuously, and turn pasta over with tongs so it is evenly cooked.  Once pasta is al dente, about 10 minutes, remove from heat.  Water should be nearly all evaporated. 
Add more basil and cheese once served.  

With love,
