Here’s the thing, since ya girl is currently doing THE ABSOLUTE MOST in life right now, I barely have time nor energy to cook. Luckily Harvey is the true chef in our home, but I seriously feel guilty having him cook every single meal, every single day. But you know what they say, teamwork makes the dream work. So when insist on stepping in for dinner, I make the easiest meals possible. My One Pot Margherita Pasta has been saving us more than I would like, but it’s so delicious and easy to make, I couldn’t hold back the recipe from you.
I don’t know if you’ve make a one pot or one skillet dish before, but they are serious life savers! With genuine one potters, you just dump and go. Of course you want to make sure that it doesn’t burn, but that’s pretty much it. This recipe for my One Pot Margherita Pasta is a true dump and go type of recipe. Just the way I like it.
