Happy Monday all! I hope the weekend was full of good food, good company and strong cocktails!
I first heard about this cooking technique form HRH Martha Stewart. It was published in Martha Stewart Living back in 2013 (I know I’m very late to the game). I never had a desire to actually make this, it seemed way too simple and a bit hokey, but boy was I wrong. After making it the first time, I knew I had to share it on the blog.
This is recipe is adapted from Martha’s recipe (we’re on a first name basis #not), I’ve tweaked the original recipe to my taste. But, none of that matters because… this is one pan.. a one pan recipe people, one pan!! I doesn’t get easier than that, well except for ordering grubhub. Oh and it’s good for the wallet too. I mean this whole meal, that serves about four people costs us about 11 dollars.
It is a great weeknight dinner, quick and takes under 1/2 hour. The one thing that is important to point out is, once everything is in the pan and it comes to a boil, you really do need to babysit it. It needs to be stirred constantly to prevent the ingredients form sticking to the bottom. You continue to cook it until the pasta is al dente, about 8-9 minutes, and the garlic has softened, the tomatoes have broken down slightly and liquid is almost evaporated.
I’m super excited to try different version of one-pan pastas! This is a lazy-carb-lovers dream!
Check it out, tell me what you think!
