How To Boost Your One-Pot Pasta
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.
Spice It Up
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!
