One Pot Pasta

I am not kidding you when I tell you this was the easiest dinner I have ever made. You just throw all the ingredients in one big saucepan, turn on the flame, bring to a boil and Voila! Dinner is served!

One Pot Pasta, originally from Martha Stewart Living, ONE POT Cookbook [1]
12 ounces linguine
12 ounces cherry or grape tomatoes, halved or quartered if large
1 onion, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
2 sprigs basil, plus torn leaves for garnish
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
4 1/2 cups water
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese, for serving
Combine all ingredients except the parmesan in a large straight-walled fry pan. Turn heat to high and bring to a boil and continue cooking, stirring or tonging pasta regularly, until most of the water is evaporated and pasta is al dente. This takes about 8-9 minutes.
Divide among 4 bowls, and liberally sprinkle fresh cheese on the pasta. Garnish with basil and olive oil.
