Martha Stewart One-Pan Pasta is a quick and easy recipe that combines pasta, tomatoes, basil, and garlic for a fast, filling and delicious meal.
If you have been following me for any length of time, then you already know that I love a meal that is simple to prepare in a short amount of time. I mean seriously, who wants to spend hours in the kitchen just to make sure the family has a meal? Not me!
With that being said, I am always on the hunt for things that I can do to shorten the time that it takes to prepare a meal. So, when I stumbled upon Martha Stewart’s One-Pan Pasta recipe, I quickly bookmarked it and saved it for a day when I would need a new recipe.
If I am being honest with you, then I completely forgot all about the recipe, and where I had saved it. I blame technology because it allows me to hide and save things for later in so many different places. However, the good thing about that is every once in a while I will scroll through those places and purge things that I have already tried or no longer need.
And wouldn’t you know it...I found this hidden pasta recipe, and had to give it a try immediately and share it with you all.
