Lazy Cook Recipe: 15 Minute One Pot Tomato Basil Pasta

I am lazy and very new to cooking. This is a yummy recipe for people who are similarly simple and only have 15 minutes to whip something up.
  1. 1.
    13 oz of dry pasta
    Linguine is my preference, but it's up to you.
  2. 2.
    2 cups chopped tomatoes
    Grape tomatoes work great, too. Also they're a little prettier.
  3. 3.
    1 whole onion, halved and thinly sliced
  4. 4.
    6 cloves of garlic, minced
  5. 5.
    1 cup chopped basil
  6. 6.
    2 tbsp olive oil
  7. 7.
    2 tsp salt
  8. 8.
    1 tsp black pepper
  9. 9.
    Put all ingredients in a large pot with 5 cups of water over high heat.
  10. 10.
    Bring to a boil, turn heat down to medium.
  11. 11.
    Stir stir stir stir stir for 8-10 minutes.
  12. 12.
    Kitchen magic reduces the water, pasta moisture, and all ingredients into a yummy sauce.
  13. 13.
    Serve immediately with shredded Parmesan.
  14. 14.
    Sit down and savor the deliciousness.
    Seriously. No phone, no TV, no screens, no work. This took 15 minutes! You deserve to enjoy it uninterrupted.
