Martha Stewart One-Pan Pasta is a quick and easy recipe that combines pasta, tomatoes, basil, and garlic for a 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 that 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 be in need of 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 awhile I will scroll through those places and purge things that I have already tried or no longer need.
And wouldn’t you know that I found this hidden pasta recipe, and I had to give it a try immediately and share it with you all.
This recipe is simple because it allows you to place all of the ingredients into a shallow skillet at once and wait for it to boil. Once the water comes to a boil, it will steam all of the ingredients together and make everything tender and delicious. This dish is full of so much flavor with the addition of onion, olive oil, and basil. It also adds in a bit of spice with the addition of red pepper flakes, if you are serving this to young children or not a fan of spicy food, then you can omit this step and it will still be just as delicious.
