I went shopping the other day and while I was looking around in the produce department, I got hit by a whiff of fresh basil...let's make a one pan pasta...
1 dry pint grape tomatoes, halved
3 large leaves of basil, roughly chopped
1 shallot, chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp hot pepper flakes
2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp salt, add more to taste
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1 Knorr beef bouillon cube
4 c water - add more as needed
4 slices cooked bacon, cut into bits - optional
Parmigiano-Reggiano, freshly grated

1 tsp salt, plus salt to taste
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1 shallot, finely chopped
14 oz can of diced tomatoes - or 1 c chopped fresh tomatoes
1 c chopped vegetables - I found an asparagus in the garden
4 basil leaves, shredded - that's what they call chiffonade in fancy cookbook slang
2 oz shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano - or other hard cheese

1 shallot, peeled and chopped
1/2 c extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
3 slices stale baguette
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp salt, more to taste
