Recipe: One Pot Pasta

July 21, 2014
I have been wanting to try this for the longest time. I LOVE pasta of any form. LOVE. So after hearing and see a few pictures of people doing various one pot pastas I said I had to see what this was really about. I was concerned about things becoming soggy, or the pasta not cooking in the process, but it went very smoothly.

I actually did a copy of a recipe for One Pot Pasta that I found on The Londoner's page. She actually got it from Martha Stewart and did some tweaking. I used what I had on hand in places that I may not have had exactly what she had listed.

This dish does not require much. It's the quintessential one pot. And it is quick and tasty. Please note I did some "eyeballing" here, as usual.

These are all the ingredients you need. Most of these are things you should have in your pantry. If not then you need to take a look at my pantry list so that you ensure you have the basic pantry needs.

I added my pasta and everything else but the Parmesan cheese and broth to my pot.

I then poured broth all over (I used beef stock because that is what I had on hand). I let everything come to a rapid boil then turned it down to a simmer.

My house was smelling amazing. The oregano and basil was an amazing mix of flavors in the air. I stirred occasionally to ensure no sticking. I didn't have to add anymore stock to the pot. 15 minutes later I was all set and ready to eat.

I grabbed my spoon and shared some. It was smelling oh so good. Added some of my Parmesan cheese and dived in.
