Do you remember the One Pot Pasta that I shared with you last year? Have you tried it yet? 20 minutes start to finish and dinner is served. It’s almost ridiculously simple to make. Toss everything into one pot, add water, cook and serve. The last time I made this, my boys had requested a cheesy pasta, so I stirred in a generous handful of cheese at the very end and then topped each bowl with more cheese. I added pine nuts as well, just because I love them. The pine nuts added a lovely nutty bite to the noodles and we made it again to share with you.
This pasta is unbelievably rich and creamy and saucy, without any cream or actual “sauce” in the recipe. The tomatoes and the cooking liquid will reduce down as the pasta releases starches that thicken the liquid and make it creamy. Take care not to overcook the pasta, taste it as it cooks and as soon as the pasta is as soft as you like it, remove it from the heat. The remaining cooking liquid will cling to the pasta making it’s own sauce.
