This recipe is amazeballs. It’s so clever and just perfect for our tiny Korean kitchens. Even the lowest level cooks can whip this one up. Sadly I did not come up with this wondrous recipe, damn you Martha Stewart and all your good ideas. However, I still had to give it a try. The results were so good I had to share it. It’s amazing how everything comes together just perfectly. Is it the best pasta dish you are ever going to have? No. But is it quick, easy, and delicious? Yes. This one will will be my go to dinner list for when I am in a rush.


300g of Linguine (I haven’t tried any other kinds of pasta yet, but it should be fine)

300g of cherry tomatoes

1 onion

6 cloves of garlic

5-6 basil leaves

1 teaspoon of chili flakes

1 teaspoon of mixed herbs

A large pinch of salt and pepper

A glug of olive oil

4  cups of water


Finely slice your garlic and onions and chop the cheery tomatoes into halves or quarters. Put the pasta into the pot along with the sliced onion, garlic, tomatoes, basil leaves, chili flakes, mixed herbs, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Then add the water.


Bring to the boil on a high heat and cook for about 10, stirring regularly. Cook until the pasta is al dente, or done to your liking and most of the water has evaporated. Add a little extra olive oil and some grated parmesan to serve. Voilà, easy peasy one pot pasta.

    • Iv’e seen them almost everywhere during the summer months, even those old ladies selling vegetables on the street seem to have them. You can use white onion for this recipe too, its just I only had a red one. x
