Regardless of what age they are, almost everyone enjoys eating pasta. It is a very versatile dish and very popular among those who are using food stamps because it is so affordable. However, a lot of people are unsure of how to make a typical pasta meal or what’s included in some of the seasons. Other people are just actively searching for a new recipe to try out. The following option is a great choice to introduce to the dinner table when your family wants pasta next time. It is a quick, easy to make meal. Additionally, it uses ingredients that you probably already have at your home, so there’s no need to go out shopping for additional groceries.
Place the uncooked pasta, onion, tomatoes, basil, garlic, and vegetable broth into a large stock pot. Add red pepper flakes and oregano, then drizzle with oil. Cover the pot and bring the broth to a boil. Reduce this down to a low simmer and then keep covered and cook for around 10 minutes. You should stir it every few minutes that pass. Cook this until almost all of the liquid has disappeared. You can leave around an inch of liquid in the pan, though this really depends on your own preferences. Some people prefer a lot of sauce in this recipe while others may find that they prefer a little less. Experiment with your family’s preferences and find out what tastes the best to them.
Season this to taste with salt and pepper, stirring the pasta several times to help spread the liquid in the bottom of the pot. Serve the pasta with parmesan cheese, if wanted. This can be paired with a green salad and a small dessert that you have made. It doesn’t matter if the herbs that are listed are used fresh or dry, they will produce the same results. You can also substitute some herbs for other if you have a preference for certain flavors or if you just prefer to use different options.
So why does everyone love so much? Pasta is one of those dishes that you can easily stretch throughout the week. There are just so many ways to eat it. You can be very creative and ensure that your family never tires of pasta as long as they are open to trying new things. A lot of times, people make pasta based on whatever other ingredients are available in the house. Some people like to add in tuna or hamburger meat, others prefer to keep it with just cheese and veggies. There are many different ways that you can turn pasta into a filling meal. Find the right recipe and your family will be certain to request it repeatedly!
