Course: Pasta
Cuisine: Italian
Servings: 4 servings


  • 1 pound bucatini pasta you can substitute spaghetti, linguini or fettuccine
  • 15 oz diced tomatoes with liquid
  • 1 large red onion peeled and sliced into rings
  • 4 cloves garlic diced
  • 3 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
  • ½ fresh basil chopped
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • cups chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil extra virgin
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Parmesan cheese freshly grated for serving


  • In a pot large enough to hold all the ingredients, add the pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, pepper flakes and oregano.
  • Add the chicken stock and top with the olive oil.
  • Cover the pot and bring the liquids to a boil. As soon as it starts to boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and continue cooking for 10 - 12 minutes until most of the liquids have cooked down to a sauce-like consistency.
    If you want a thicker sauce, continue cooking but be careful not to cook it down too much.
  • Be sure to stir the pot every few minutes to combine the ingredients and prevent anything from sticking on the bottom.
  • Taste the sauce and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • Stir and serve with the Parmesan cheese.
