1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 bell peppers (any color), thinly sliced
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 large head broccoli, cut into small florets
12 ounces fettuccini pasta
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 1/2 cups water
Grated Parmesan cheese

Place all ingredients except Parmesan and oil in a large soup pot, adding basil, salt, and pepper to taste.
Bring to a boil and then simmer for 9 minutes, stirring frequently. Saving 1/2 cup pasta water, drain pot.
