We’ve got a one-pot winner of a dinner over here. Just an FYI.
These past couple of weeks have been kinda sorta insanely busy, to say the least. And it’s in these moments — when I’m so frazzled that I forget to brush my teeth or take off my slippers before leaving the house, yeeaahhh — that simple, easy-to-throw-together meals restore my sanity. Because 1) they’re food, and I like to eat and 2) I don’t have to think about dinner as another to-do on my list. Just put it in a pot/oven/microwave, let it cook, done and done. Time to fill my tummy.
Of course, oftentimes this means dinner comes from a thin box tucked in the back of the freezer containing a frozen disc of something that starts with a “p” and ends in “izza,” or from a box that’s been tucked away in the pantry for a year containing uncooked noodles and a powdery substance they call cheese… or a burrito. From Chipotle. With a generous heap of guac, thankyouverymuch.
And then there’s this one-pot pasta thing which, until recently, was only a good idea I’d heard about or saw pinned a bazillion times on Pinterest. Now, this one-pot pasta thing? It’s a great idea that I’ve (finally) put on our dinner table. And I have a feeling it’ll be back again and again when I need something healthy/my sanity to stay intact.
