Tomato, Garlic and Basil Pasta Using Just One Pan!

My garden is chock-full of tomatoes, basil, garlic and onions right now, begging to be thrown together into a delicious tomato sauce and simmered lovingly for hours. However, we are having yet ANOTHER heat wave here in New England, and I can not bring myself to have anything cook on the stove top for very long. To use those ingredients and to create an amazing home made meal with minimal effort and clean-up, I tried Martha Stewart's One Pan Pasta recipe. This recipe requires no draining of the pasta, the sauce ingredients cook in the water with the pasta in about 9 minutes, and you know it's done when the water has evaporated and the pasta is coated with a creamy tomato sauce. 

Ingredients:

12 ounces linguine

12 ounces grape tomatoes, halved

1 onion, thinly sliced

4 cloves of garlic, sliced

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

2 sprigs of fresh basil, plus more for garnish

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

4 1/2 cups water

Throw all ingredients into one pot and bring to a boil. Keep boiling over high heat, stirring frequently until all the water has evaporated and the pasta is done to your liking. Add salt if needed, serve with fresh Parmesan cheese, torn basil pieces and a drizzling of more olive oil.

Do you have any one-pot recipes?

I've actually had something very similar to this, and it was one of the best meals I've ever had.
