One Pot Pasta

I have seen many variations of this on Pinterest, and since my husband and I are such pasta fanatics I knew I had to try it out. I couldn't believe the results! Here is my version:

The ingredients (+ linguine, can't believe I forgot to put it in the picture!)

450g linguine
2 cups vegetable stock
2 1/4 cups water
1/4 cup red wine
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 bunch spinach
4 tomatoes, chopped
Handful of fresh basil (save a few for garnish)
1 sprig fresh oregano, chopped
1/2 tsp. - 1tsp. red chili flakes 
1 tbsp. chives, chopped
Splash olive oil
Block of parmesan to grate


Chop garlic, tomatoes, oregano, and chives. Add liquids to pot, linguine, and other ingredients, except parmesan. Set to high heat to boil. You can break the noodles in half, but we like long noodles, so be sure to stir frequently if you leave them. When the noodles have softened, put a lid on to boil. Once boiling, turn down to a low boil with the lid half on for 9 minutes, stirring frequently. The noodles should absorb all of the liquid! After, remove from heat and allow to sit for a few minutes, tossing occasionally. Once dished, sprinkle with chopped basil and freshly grated parmesan *** it is worth it to use freshly grated parmesan from a block rather than packaged. Once you try it, you'll never go back ;). 


Make sure to enjoy a glass of red wine with the dish, too!
