Sprinkle your pasta with grated Parmesan cheese, and fresh basil.
One pot pasta is a convenient way to enjoy a warm wholesome homemade meal in a short amount a time, without dirting a ton of dishes. You literally throw all the ingredients into one pot and let it do its thing. Now that's something to get excited about, especially after a long day at the office. You can't go wrong with a pasta dish.
If you don't have linguine, no problem, throw in another type of pasta to switch it up. Have some extra vegetables in the refrigerator you need to use? Throw them in the pot too! It doesn't stop there; you can customize on spices, herbs and toss in different cheeses as well as make a rich, creamy tomato sauce if you're in the mood for something more decadent.
If your feeling like a creamy tomato rendition of a one-pot pasta, try boiling the pasta in two in a half cups of chicken broth and 12 ounces of Mariana sauce. When the pasta is cooked, and the liquid is reduced, add six tablespoons of half-and-half, and a quarter cup cheese of your choosing. You can also try adding pesto sauce as an exciting, tasty twist.
Shrimp and pre-cooked sausage can offer your one-pot pasta a punch of flavor as well as some added protein.
Not only do vegetables provide extra nutrition, but they also add vibrant color, texture, and unique flavors to your pasta dish. Try adding some mushrooms, spinach, artichoke hearts, bell peppers, or kale to your one-pot pasta.
Try experimenting with different seasonings. Add some cajun flare, by mixing up paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, cayenne pepper, salt, black pepper, and red chili flakes for a spicy kick!
The ingredients in one-pot pasta, such as the pasta, and chicken broth may not be suitable for everyone's diet; however, there are excellent alternatives for these ingredients so everyone can enjoy this easy and convenient meal.
One pot pasta is a healthy, quick and easy meal with many flavor variations that you can prepare for your family in a snap. This simple dish will surely become a weeknight staple.
