Often I have numerous things I ‘d like to prepare, however the idea of doing meals afterwards stops me from cooking anything.
Does anybody else have that problem? If I had a full-time dish-washer perhaps that would help. But until that takes place, I’m going to begin to publish more one-pot meals on here.
I was a little doubtful of one-pot pasta meals, due to the fact that I wasn’t sure how the pasta would be totally cooked. As long as you have enough liquid/steam it works just great!
I had a lot of mushrooms and spinach on hand, which is why I chose those veggies for the dish. You can use a variety of veggies to suit your choices.
Keep in mind that spinach cooks down a LOAD so you can always add more.
Just saute the veggies in a little bit of oil (I utilized coconut oil), then add pasta, water and diced tomatoes to the same pot.
After cooking I like to add a little olive oil so it’s not as dry.
Complete with spices and some salt and you have dinner!
As with the majority of the dishes on this website, you can adjust things to your choice. Veggies and spices are awaiting your creativity.
I chose the pasta with Italian Flavoring Also enjoyed it with thyme.
I believe I like this one-pot meal thing. At least until I marry a man who likes to do the meals.
