This easy One-Pot Tomato Basil and Pasta dish is delicious, nutritious, and low-cost. Make it in 30 minutes on a busy weeknight.
8 ounces whole-wheat rotini
1 cup water
2 cups low-sodium “no-chicken” broth or chicken broth
1 (15-ounce) can of no-salt-added diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 ½ teaspoons Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
6 cups baby kale or baby spinach
½ cup slivered basil
Grated Parmesan cheese for garnish
In a large pot, combine pasta, water, broth, tomatoes, oil, Italian seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and crushed red pepper.
Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
Uncover, reduce heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes.
Stir in kale and cook, stirring often, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, 5 to 7 minutes more. (If using spinach, add it after about 10 minutes so it cooks in the remaining 2 to 3 minutes.)
Stir in basil. Garnish with Parmesan, if desired.
