  • Pour the whole box of pasta into a large skillet (approximately 12 inches in diameter). Pour 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) of cold water and chicken broth into the pan, ensuring that the liquid covers the pasta. Add onion.
  • Turn on the burner to high, then set your timer for 10 minutes. Optional: add about 1/2 teaspoon (3 mL) of salt to taste.
  • Cook on high, stirring regularly, until most of the water is absorbed, about 10 minutes but may vary by stove. 

  • When pasta is almost done, add pepperoni and garlic; gently cook through.  Remove from heat and stir in cheese and basil.  Serve immediately.
