Or, basil and grape tomato pasta with a bit of zing.
So you can either combine all of the ingredients (pasta, onion, garlic, crushed red pepper, fresh basil, and grape tomatoes) in a pan, cover it with water and let it simmer down (then assault it with a fat smattering of stinky Parmesan, of course). Or, you can cook the ingredients in the standard order, so sautée the onions and garlic in a bit of nice olive oil, while cooking the pasta in water, then throw the grape tomatoes in, throw the pasta in, along with the red pepper flakes and basil and top with cheese. In all honesty though, as pretty as one-pan-pasta looks prior to being cooked, it really doesn't have as much flavour or stand up strongly compared to the latter. But the choice is yours ?
Enjoy ? xx
