Recipe: One Pot Pasta

One Pot Pasta
There are a few secrets for success.  One is, don’t skip the tomatoes.  The rest of the veggies remain intact, but the tomatoes break down and help to form a sauce with the starchy pasta water and the cheese.   Two, don’t skimp on the cheese, for the reason just mentioned.  Three, pay attention to flavoring the pot.  In addition to salt, I like lots of black pepper, red pepper flakes, and my secret flavor weapon, a dash of sherry vinegar.  And finally, don’t forget the fresh garnishes.  Reserve some little tomatoes and a big handful of fresh basil for topping the cooked pasta.
If you haven’t tried this idea yet, I recommend you give it a go.  The concept is one you can tinker with, and there are lots of different variations online.  Just search one pot pasta.
