One Pot Pasta

Here is a super tasty, easy and quick meal.  I like to swap out regular pasta for quinoa pasta, making it very healthy, too.

I read in a magazine that Italians make this all the time, but the article did not have quantities of the ingredients listed, so I had to play around with the right amount of liquid.  You can add additional liquid if the pasta isn’t done and season to taste.


4-6 fresh vine ripened tomatoes – chopped

6-8 cloves garlic – diced

1 medium white onion- diced

3 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

6 servings pasta – I like penne for this but any variety will work

1 Tablespoon red pepper flakes

Salt & Pepper

3 to 4 cups water or just over the pasta

Cook over medium high heat, done in about 15 mins.  Quinoa pasta takes a little more time to cook, if you are using regular pasta, it will be more like 5 to 7 minutes.



Serve with fresh parmesan
