Pasta with sauce is usually a ‘I’m not in the mood for cooking’ dish. Probably the most basic you can get. But no – there is even more basic way. Pasta for dummies :) Just through everything together in a pot – cook – stir – eat!

Personally I really like this recipe because it’s just a few basic ingredients that make for a great Italien taste.  – And you have only one pot to clean!


ONE PAN PASTA (serves 4)

  • 340g spaghetti
  • 340g cherry tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 springs basil [plus more for garnish]
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • black pepper
  • salt
  • red pepper flakes
  • 4.5 cups water
  • parmesan cheese


_ quarter tomatoes

_ thinly slice onion and garlic

_ place all ingredients [including the spices] into a large pan [pan should be large enough so the spaghetti don’t poke out on one end]

_ add water and bring to a boil

_ reduce heat and simmer until all water is evaporated [stir once in a while so you don’t end up with a giant pasta lump]

_ if pasta stays to al dente add a few tablespoons water

_ season to taste with more salt, pepper, and chili

_ serve sprinkled with parmesan cheese slices
