With these easy one-pot pasta recipes, you don't have to bother with boiling pasta in a separate pot. Instead, you cook everything--and I mean everything--all in one pot. What you get are family-pleasing dinners with a lot less kitchen clean-up. Sound good? Now, let's look at the recipes.
"Delicious gooey comfort food with a spicy kick," says bd.weld. "I used homemade salsa/pico de gallo and substituted Nacho Cheese Sauce in place of the Velveeta . Please excuse me while I go and have another bowl."
"This is exactly the type of recipe I'm looking for when I look for 'quick week-night meal,'" says joanneK. "I was a little nervous that it wouldn't cook completely, but it was awesome -- absolutely love that was all prepared using one pan."
"I didn't put all the spinach in to cook, used the fresh spinach as a bed for the pasta & was great," says tigger9982. "Added chicken broth as needed for pasta."
"AWESOME! Something different and delicious," says purplekamel. "Threw some prosciutto in for good measure. Will definitely make this again."
The rice noodles in this dish are soaked instead of boiled, but they still end up in the skillet along with all the other good things that go into this Asian-style one-pot meal.
"I loved the sauce!" says Tifani. "Switched the veggies for sauteed mushrooms, green peppers, green onions, and added a bit of tahini paste instead of using peanuts, but it was amazing."
"Liked this much better than cooking pasta alone," says lnewman65. "Much richer. I made with kale as that is what I had."
"DELICIOUS! I substituted hot Italian venison sausage for the turkey sausage, but otherwise followed the recipe as is," says crabbyJP. "It was fantastic and the leftovers were even better!"
Not to be confused with authentic Hungarian Goulash, but an easy American-style skillet meal full of comfort all the same.
Super-quick and satisfying way to beef up mac & cheese from a box.
