One Pot Pasta

Today I tried a life-changing new recipe: One Pot Pasta.

Instead of making the sauce in one pot and the pasta in another, you simply mix everything together right from the start and cook until you get a creamy sauce, which takes about 15 minutes. I know 15 minutes sounds kind of shocking if you are like me and love your pasta al dente but the photos on Berries & Passion looked really convincing.

And I can tell you, it is absolutely delicious! I am even thinking about having this dish every night for at least a week, just with different ingredients – and you actually could make it with any kind of meet, fish, seafood and vegetables you have in your fridge.

Tonight I chose this:

One pot pasta
Slice garlic, onions, fresh basil, tomatoes, mozzarella and put it in a pan or pot with spaghetti (You need about 100g per person). Fill the pan with water, add a bit of olive oil as well as a table spoon of tomato puree and season with salt, pepper and half a vegetable stock cube. Boil for about 15 minutes (or until the sauce is creamy) and keep stirring. Meanwhile add a tiny bit of balsamic vinegar and sugar if you like.
