As you may have noticed by now, I love the one-pot pastas. Per normal I used a whole wheat pasta when making this recipe and I highly recommend it. The combination of the red wine and the nutty whole wheat pasta is great.
- 16 oz. pasta
- 1 small white onion
- 2 garlic cloves
- 2 sprigs of fresh basil
- 1 bay leaf
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 1/2 cups vegetable stock
- 2 cups red wine (any kind you prefer to drink)
- 3/4 cup water
- salt + pepper
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese to serve
Finely cut the onion and mince the garlic. Add all ingredients (except the Parmesan cheese) to a large pot. Bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat to a low boil and cook for 7-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once the noodles are cooked through, remove the bay leaf and basil sprigs before serving.
Top with a little more pepper and the cheese. If you have extra basil, go ahead and toss that on as well.
