Super Speedy One Pot Pasta

Speedy One Pot Pasta Pin

Sometimes you need something on plan that is easy and quick to cook. If that dish includes loads of speed foods, then it’s even better. When you can cook it all in one pot, then it’s very nearly perfect!

Although I have given all the ingredients that I used, you could swap, add and omit as desired. Almost any vegetables would work well, but this was a good mix that I would repeat in the future.

If you wanted to save even more time, frozen prepared vegetables work very well, but you would need to add less water as frozen vegetables are very wet when they thaw.

The best thing about this dish is that as you cook in only one pot, there is minimal washing up.

  1. Hmm, looks yummy! I’m not a cook at all, so this would seem ideal for someone like me 🙂 Nice and easy, but yummy at the same time! I would include it with a bowl of lettuce and buttered bread then I’m all stuffed 😛
