One Pot Pasta

This pasta is super easy to make and best of all - you only need one pot to prepare it all in!! 


450 grams of spaghetti
1 Chorizo (sliced)
1 large brown onion (sliced)
1 packet/punnet of cherry tomatoes
2 cups of fresh basil leaves
4 cloves of garlic OR 2 teaspoons of garlic paste
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup grated parmesan 


In a large pot over a medium heat, combine the spaghetti, chorizo, onion, tomatoes, basil, garlic and 4 1/2 cups of water
Add salt and pepper, to taste
Bring to the boil
Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until the pasta is cooked and the water has reduced
Stir in parmesan
Serve while hot


This pasta was delicious! Very easy to make, my only concern was the pot I used. Some of the pasta stuck to the bottom, and burnt a bit. Next time I would use a smaller pot, or a dutch oven type pot.
