How to make One Pot Creamy Pasta!
Updated: Dec 31, 2018
Have you ever heard of cooking pasta without draining the water? What?!? You’re probably thinking, that’s crazy! Believe it or not, that is exactly what you’re going to be doing with this “#justonepot #creamy #pasta #recipe”. The inspiration came from the one and only, Martha Stewart, the ultimate American #foodie tv personality! Similarly, Donal Skehan, a Youtube #foodie published his very own one pot recipe, which gave us all the inspiration to give it a try and create our very own!
At first glance, you look at the title, and are intrigued by the word “One” right after reading the following words which is pot or pan. As you watch Martha Stewart’s video on Youtube titled “Martha Stewart's Famous One Pot Pasta Recipe” and watch Doanl Skehan’s youtube video titled “How to make... One Pan Pasta!” you can’t stop but think, we have to try this even though it sounds too good to be true! While we were giving it a go for the very first time, we told each other that if somehow this dish becomes botched or mismanaged, then it would be ok since we would be having fun in the kitchen and we would be trying something new and different! As we wrapped up whipping up this one pot pasta recipe by Martha Stewart and Donal Skehan, we were greatly surprised by the fact that it didn’t damage our cookware, and were flabbergasted by how delicious it was! After making this one pot pasta recipe, you would start questioning yourself why it took so long for you to ever make this tasty hassle-free recipe, and regretting all of those times you purchased frozen ready-made pasta in a bag from the frozen aisle in a supermarket when this one pot recipe is simple, no-fuss, and won’t cost a pretty penny! Take a look at the Ingredients list, one bag of pasta of your choice (we used spaghetti which usually costs $1 or so), cherry tomatoes which typically sells for $3, an onion, which is give or take $1, frozen spinach which is priced around $1, and olive oil which you can more often than not pick up for the amount of approximately $0.18!?! Compare this easy and hassle-free recipe to Bertolli® Chicken Alfredo & Penne - 24oz frozen meal that is valued between 5.99-7.99 depending on if you purchase the Bertolli® Chicken Alfredo & Penne frozen pasta meal from target or any other grocery stores like Albertsons or Vons. Another way of putting it is to stay away from the ready-made frozen pasta meals that require you to just heat up the package bag because it’s convenient. It’s more affordable to cook from scratch! This one pot pasta recipe is as quick and simple as heating up frozen ready-made pasta meals. Give this recipe a shot and you will see.
