One Pot Tomato Basil Pasta


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ large onion, diced
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces Banza pasta (or pasta of choice)
  • 15 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 15 oz roasted red peppers
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 cups spinach

    To Serve:
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, sliced
  • Grated parmesan cheese, optional

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and saute for 2 minutes.
  2. Then add the rest of the pasta ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 6 minutes, until pasta is al dente and everything has thickened slightly. Be sure to stir often to avoid burning on the bottom.

Serve with fresh basil over the top and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese, if desired.
