This easy, weeknight dinner is fresh, light, filled with flavor, comes together in less than 30 minutes, and is made in one pot. Also great as a side dish.


  • 1 lb. (450 g) spaghetti
  • 4 cups (1 L) chicken or vegetable broth
  • 4 small plum tomatoes
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) loosely packed fresh basil leaves
  • 3–4   garlic cloves
  • ⅓ cup (73 mL) olive oil
  • ½ oz. (15 g) fresh Parmesan cheese


  1. Break the spaghetti noodles in half and place them in the Rockcrok® Dutch Oven. Add the broth. Microwave, covered, on HIGH for 8 minutes.

  2. Use the 5" (13-cm) Santoku Knife to cut the tomatoes and basil into large pieces on the Flexible Cutting Mat and add to the Manual Food Processor.

  3. Press the garlic with the Garlic Press into the Manual Food Processor. Add the olive oil and process all the ingredients until they’re chopped, scraping down the sides as needed with the Small Mix ‘N Scraper®.

  4. Remove the Rockcrok® from the microwave, then stir the noodles and broth with the Large Chef’s Tongs. Add the bruschetta mixture and return the Rockcrok® to the microwave for an additional 8 minutes.

  5. Grate the fresh Parmesan cheese over the pasta using the Microplane® Adjustable Coarse Grater. Stir and serve.
