1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste

1 large sweet onion, cut up

4 cloves garlic, diced

½ teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves

2 large sprigs basil, chopped

4 ½ cups vegetable broth

2 tablespoons olive oil

Parmesan Cheese for garnish


  1. Place pasta, tomatoes, tomato paste, onion, garlic, basil in large stock pot.
  2. Pour in vegetable broth.
  3. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and oregano leaves.
  4. Drizzle on top with oil.
  5. Cover pot and bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce to a low simmer and keep covered and cook about 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes so it doesn’t stick.
  7. Cook until only about a half inch of liquid is left in the bottom.
  8. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese to taste.

  1. Sounds good, Timothy! I just have one question: I’m reading this at 11:29 pm on November 30, 2016. How on earth did you manage to write it on Dec. 1 at 4:06 am, as it says on the copy I received????

    1. Time travel!

      No, I’m kidding. For some reason, my blog thinks it’s in a different time zone, five hours ahead of us.
