One Pan Pasta

Are you in need of a nutritious, easy and delicious dinner idea for the family tonight? Try this one-pan pasta courtesy of  Martha Stewart Living. How, you ask, can a pasta this delicious be cooked in one pan?! That would make the cleanup, well, easy. Believe it, ladies and gents! This pasta is so simple even I can make it. In fact, it’s become a staple at my house. The kids love how it tastes and I love how easy it is to clean up. A recipe that hits those two marks is a win-win in my book!

Give it a try for dinner tonight, and let us know what you think!

One Pan Pasta

  • 12 ounces linguine
  • 12 ounces cherry or grape tomatoes, halved (or quartered if large)
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 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


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 (approx. 9 minutes). Season to taste with salt and pepper, divide among 4 bowls, and garnish with basil. Serve with oil and Parmesan.
