Working gal's one-pot pasta

One-pot pasta

Ever have those days where you get back from work totally knackered, longing for a bath, some slobbing on the sofa and shovelling food into your mouth? But you are also too tired to even think of something to cook for dinner, let alone actually cook it and then oh maaaaan, wash up all those pans. Whhhhyyy don't I have a live-in michelin star chef?!

Every day? Yeah me too.

Hence why I loooooove this recipe. You literally just pile a load of tasty stuff in a pan, cook for 10-15 minutes and done. Also just the one pan to wash up. BOOM.

Life saver guys, life saver.

A large handful of fresh basil leaves

Finely chop your onion, garlic cloves and slice your tomatoes in half. Whack into your pot with the pasta, chilli flakes and fresh basil leaves.
