The Truly One-Pot Pasta
The beauty of this recipe is that you boil your penne, ziti or bow ties together with the sauce ingredients. The only real "work" is chopping some garlic, onion, kale and basil; you cook them in some olive oil, along with a can of diced tomatoes. Add the pasta and water, let it simmer until the pasta is al dente and serve with plenty of grated Parmesan for a touch of creaminess.
