Awesome Pinterest Find: One Pot Wonder Tomato Basil Pasta

I’m sure you’ve seen this pic floating around pinterest.
It looked easy enough so I thought I would give it a try.  The pin took me here.  I guess the recipe is a modification of a Martha Stewart one pot recipe.  Anyways, it was super quick, easy, and delicious.  Jack and Dave both loved it.  It took about 5 minutes of prep time, which for me, is the perfect amount of time for a weekday meal.  I have reposted the recipe below with a few changes I made.  Enjoy!

Serves 4 to 6 as an entree
12 ounces linguine pasta
1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes with liquid
1 large sweet onion, cut in julienne strips
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (I omitted these)
2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves (I used dried Herbs de Provence instead)
2 large sprigs basil, chopped (again Herbs de Provence instead)
4 1/2 cups vegetable broth (regular broth and NOT low sodium)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Parmesan cheese for garnish
Place pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, in a large stock pot. Pour in vegetable broth. Sprinkle on top the pepper flakes and oregano. Drizzle top with oil.
Cover pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer and keep covered and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes or so. Cook until almost all liquid has evaporated – I left about an inch of liquid in the bottom of the pot – but you can reduce as desired .
Season to taste with salt and pepper , stirring pasta several times to distribute the liquid in the bottom of the pot. Serve garnished with parmesan cheese.
