The 9 Minute One Pot Pasta Dish from Puglia that is Taking the Internet by Storm - Eat Like a Girl
200g linguine (a form of pasta – like fettuccine and trenette, but elliptical in section rather than flat.)
200g cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered if large or a diced peeled great tomato
2 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
a pinch of chilli flakes (to taste)
2 sprigs basil, plus torn leaves for garnish
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
500ml water (you may need to top it up a little – I didn’t – have some water boiled just in case)
freshly grated Parmesan cheese, for serving
a large pan that will fit the linguine horizontally, I used my sauté pan
Combine the dried pasta, tomatoes, garlic, chilli flakes, basil, oil, 1 teaspoon salt, a pinch of pepper and the water in a large shallow pan.
Bring to a boil over high heat.
Boil the mixture, stirring and turning pasta frequently with tongs, until the pasta is al dente and water has nearly evaporated, about 9 minutes.
But keep an eye on it.
Season to taste with salt and pepper, divide among 2 bowls, and garnish with fresh torn basil.
Serve with a drizzle of oil and Parmesan.
