One Pot - Pasta

    12 ounces linguine
    12 ounces cherry or grape tomatoes, halved or quartered if large
    1 onion, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
    4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
    2 sprigs basil, plus torn leaves for garnish
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
    Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    4 1/2 cups water
    Freshly grated Parmesan cheese, for serving


Combine pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, red-pepper flakes, basil, oil, 2 teaspoons salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and water in a large straight-sided skillet. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil mixture, stirring and turning pasta frequently with tongs, until pasta is al dente and water has nearly evaporated, about 9 minutes.

Season to taste with salt and pepper, divide among 4 bowls, and garnish with basil. Serve with oil and Parmesan.
