Fridge Foraging: One Pot Summertime Pasta

Every Wednesday on Instagram I do something called fridge foraging where I cook from whatever I have in my fridge. Thought I would share it here as well, especially since this was a great one!


One Pot Summertime Pasta 

  • 1 lb. dried pasta
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in half if they are large
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 gloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, roughly chopped 
  • 1 fresno chili (or dried red pepper flakes) 
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 cup Parmesean cheese, shredded
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Garnish with basil 

In a large pot place pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, sun dried tomatoes, pepper and basil. Pour in 5 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for 9 minutes or until the pasta is cooked and the water has mostly evaporated. Top with olive oil, cheese and a hug pinch of sea salt. 

Serves 4 to 6.
