Fast No Fuss Pasta

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it but we’ve been in the process of moving into a new house the past few weeks and mealtime has become mostly takeout which to be honest I’m getting sick of plus it’s no good for the waistline!  The other night I just decided it was time to stop unpacking boxes and actually try and make some dinner so I raided my new beautiful pantry and threw this dinner together all with ingredients that I had on hand.  It was delicious!

1 (16 oz) package your choice of pasta, prepared according to package directions (I used rotini)

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons dried onion (or whatever you have on hand – real onion, onion powder, frozen onion)

2 (14.5 oz each) cans diced tomatoes (I used the Italian kind), not drained

1 teaspoon basil

1 teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1 teaspoon garlic powder

Parmesan cheese

1  Cook pasta according to package directions.

2  While pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in large skillet over medium heat.  Add onion to oil and saute for 1 – 2 minutes then add remaining ingredients, stir to combine and bring to a simmer.  Allow to simmer until pasta is done.

3  Serve sauce over pasta with a sprinkle of Parmesan.
