I want to introduce you to a pasta that could possibly change your life .
It is the easiest pasta recipe you will ever come across .
Inspired by the great Martha Stewart .
It only takes a few ingredients , and it's all done in one pot .
This is my one pot pasta with tomatoes , basil , all those brilliant , classic Italian flavours .
So it starts off with a little bit of chopping .
I've got some tomatoes which are already sliced .
I'm gonna slice up my garlic nice and thin .
And the beautiful thing about this recipe is that it all takes place in one pot .
So once you have all your ingredients ready to go , it's gonna cook pretty quickly .
So we've got garlic .
We've got a little bit of chilli .
You don't have to add the chilli if you don't want to , but I think it adds a nice touch of heat in a pasta sauce just like this .
The trick with this pasta , because it cooks so quickly , is to make sure that you have nice thin slices on your garlic , on your chilli and on your onion .
It just means that it's going to cook together quite quickly and quite fast , but you're also not going to get any of that raw flavour from any of those ingredients .
So just nice thin slices on your chilli .
And then finally , that onion just take the tops and the ends off your onion and then just finally slice on the vertical .
You should be left with wafer thin slices of onion that is going to cook down and add so much richness to the sauce .
I have to admit that I was quite sceptical when I first came across this recipe , but it really works , having tried it , having tested it , it just comes together as something really luscious , creamy and satisfying in the sense that you get all those Italian flavours in one pot with very little effort .
We are in business .
We have the onion , we have the garlic and we have the chilli .
And now it's all about an assembly job .
I have a pan that's large and high sided , and I'm going straight in there with some pasta .
We're gonna start off with onions in one corner of the pan , stick in that chilli and the garlic .
Get in those tomatoes .
I'm using cherry tomatoes here , and if you can get a mixture of colours all the better , but any tomatoes we do here , you just want something that's going to break down quickly .
So if you have larger tomatoes , just chop them up a little finer .
And then , for that truly authentic Italian taste , you have got to go in there with basil .
I'm going to use about half this bunch in the sauce at the start , and then I'm going to decorate it with some more at the very end .
So just tear off some of those leaves and then scatter them in and around this lovely looking pan , A good drizzle of olive oil going in here .
You just want a few gloves , season it up with some salt and some pepper .
There is something very satisfying about a dish that looks this good before you've even started cooking .
Now that we've got all that , it's time to get in there with our liquid .
You can use chicken stock here if you want to , but just regular water will do .
Let's pour that straight the way over , and now that's pretty much it .
That's all you've got to do .
Stick on the heat .
This is going to cook out for about 10 minutes .
You need to continuously stir and just keep an eye on it to make sure everything breaks down .
It cooks out , and you get left with this brilliant pasta sauce .
This is now starting to come together .
It's come to the boil , and you just need to use the tongues and mush it about the place .
And what will happen is that pasta will swell up .
It'll take on a little bit of the liquid .
The tomatoes mush down .
You've got all the flavour of the onion , and basically what you'll be left with is a silky smooth pasta sauce , which is just epic .
The only piece of advice I will give you while making this is keep your eye on it and use that tongue just to make sure that everything cooks through .
I mean , it's only gonna cook for 10 minutes , so you do need to keep an eye on it .
This is exactly what you're after .
That silky sauce that perfectly cooked pasta , and now to finish it off , I'm just going to grate some pecorino cheese over the top .
The trick here is to grate the pecorino in give it a last stir , and it actually helps to bring the sauce together with that bit of creamy cheese running through it .
That should do me .
Give it a last good stir through .
And don't forget some of that fresh basil .
Just tear in those leaves .
That last little hit of fresh basil will just make all the difference .
Give it a last little stir , and the liquid that's in this pan has come together with the starchiness from the pasta to create a really velvety tomato sauce .
So this is looking pretty good .
I'm going to give it one last season with a bit of black pepper , and now it is time to serve .
This is where I get a little bit excited .
We've only had 10 minutes in a pan , and you get left with the most creamy and luscious looking sauce .
The tomatoes have broken down .
The sweetness is just going to add so much to this sauce .
So now all that's left to do is to dive in and try some .
This is why this is so amazing .
In very short amount of time , you have a perfect plate of pasta .
It is creamy .
It's delicious .
It has all the flavours of Italy in one bite .
Italians , please look away .
Because this is probably not the classic way to cook this , but it is so , so good .
