The idea behind this dish is that you cook your linguine in a measured amount of stock, rather than a massive pan of water. Throw in your raw ingredients; garlic, cherry tomatoes, Italian hard cheese and herbs, to cook as one. They marry together to form perfectly cooked pasta and a silky smooth sauce.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 One Pot Pasta

Boil a full kettle

Add the stock cube[s] and 700ml [1.4L] boiled water to a large pot (big enough to fit all the ingredients)

Place the pot over a high heat and bring to the boil

2 One Pot Pasta

Meanwhile, peel and finely slice the onion[s]

Peel and finely slice the garlic

Chop the cherry tomatoes in half

Grate the cheese

3 One Pot Pasta

Once the stock is boiling, reduce the heat to medium and add the linguine (you can break the linguine in half if it doesn't fit)

Add the tomatoes, onion, garlic, dried oregano and the chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!)

Add half the cheese and half the basil

4 One Pot Pasta

Add 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil and 1 tsp [2 tsp] of both sugar and pepper

Cover and cook for 5 min or until half of the water has absorbed


5 One Pot Pasta

After 5 min, remove the lid and stir continuously until the linguine has cooked (approx. 5 min), adding more water if needed

Tip: stirring the sauce releases the starch from the pasta, making it creamier

6 One Pot Pasta

Once cooked, add the remaining cheese and basil

7 One Pot Pasta

Taste for seasoning, adding more salt and pepper if needed
