Last night, we (well, actually Frosty) was busy putting out lights on our patio so I would quit saying, “Frosty, I wish we could be the first ones on our street this year to put lights up.” So while he was outside, I got in the mood for Italian. I remembered this dish that I had seen on Facebook a few days ago and decided to make it. Wow, we loved it and cannot wait to have the leftovers again tonight. One pot dish and oh so easy. Here it is
4 1/2 cups vegetable broth
12 oz spaghetti
1/2 thinly sliced onion
4 garlic cloves
2 large stems of fresh basil
1 (16 oz) diced tomatoes (I used Hunts with basil and garlic)
2 tables olive oil.
Put everything, even the raw spaghetti, in a large pot that can be used on stove top. Sprinkle the olive oil over the top. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn down heat to simmer and cook, still covered, about 15 more minutes, stirring about every 5 minutes. Dish up into bowls and grate your favorite Italian cheese over the top. Season with salt and pepper to taste. As the pasta cooks with the other ingredient, it makes a great sauce. Even Frosty commented and said how good it was. Crusty bread with garlic and butter and you have a fantastic and quick dinner.
