(Please click on pic then click SHARE so recipe saves to your timeline. You can refer back to it later!)

Pasta, Tomatoes, Veggie Broth, Olive Oil, and Seasonings (details below)

Throw it all in the pot, INCLUDING the uncooked Pasta, and cook! - Bring it to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. The starch leaches out of the pasta and makes a rich, warm sauce for the noodles. The other ingredients cook right along with the pasta
Ingredients

12 ounces pasta (I used Linguine)
1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes with liquid ( I used zesty red pepper flavor)
1 large sweet onion, cut in julienne strips
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
2 large sprigs basil, chopped
4 1/2 cups vegetable broth (regular broth and NOT low sodium)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Parmesan cheese for garnish

Directions

Place pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, in a large stock pot. Pour in vegetable broth. Sprinkle on top the pepper flakes and oregano. Drizzle top with oil.

Cover pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer and keep covered and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes or so. Cook until almost all liquid has evaporated – I left about an inch of liquid in the bottom of the pot – but you can reduce as desired .

Season to taste with salt and pepper , stirring pasta several times to distribute the liquid in the bottom of the pot. Serve garnished with Parmesan cheese. 

Enjoy A Healthier Happier YOU!

Ok, so let me start by saying mine didn't look anything like the before picture.
First off the pasta didn't fit nice in the pot like the picture did, I would venture a guess that he broke the pasta in half, I hate doing that so I didn't.
2nd, what is the green leafy veggy?  Looked like spinach to me, my husband said no must be the chopped basil sprigs. Really? Based on the image  found looks like he didn't chop the stupid leaves. (I found the image on
shutterstock and you can click the image to go to their website)

3rd, it was just nasty.  It really needed some kind of protein, Jeremy suggested shrimp, I would have been happy with chicken as well.
It looks like an Italian version of low mien.
And lastly, YUK.

I do not recommend making this.  However, if someone else tried this and has a different opinion and/or suggestions for improvement please feel free to let me know in the comments.
