Servings: 4 to 6
I can wholeheartedly say this is my new favorite weeknight dish. I love that it is plant-forward and made with relatively few ingredients, most of which are pantry-friendly. It’s also a chance to use that bag of peas you’ve forgotten in your freezer, if you can’t track down fresh.
In a large Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes, and cook until tomatoes are starting to burst, about 4 minutes.
Stir in the pasta and 1 tsp. salt. Add 8 cups water, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-high, and cook, uncovered, stirring constantly, until the water is absorbed and the pasta is al dente, 20 to 25 minutes. Add the peas, stir to combine, and remove from the heat. Season to taste with salt.
Divide among pasta bowls. Garnish with the basil and Parmigiano, and serve immediately.
I love this recipe! This is the second time that I have made it and I can't get enough of it. Everything worked as directed. Great summer pasta dish!
Water did not all absorb/evaporate after 30 minutes of boiling 16oz of pasta. Will serve with slotted spoon and hope it's edible.
Are you saying that 14oz of pasta is going to absorb 8 cups of water? Don’t think so.
