Hey y’all…are you ever inspired or inclined to make a recipe that you saw on the internet? Maybe it was a video you saw on a friend’s Facebook feed. Well, that’s what happened to me recently.
I saw this recipe floating around and frankly I didn’t pay a lot of attention to it. I mean, I already know how to make pretty good pasta. But then about two weeks later I saw this video and it blew my mind.
I know that sounds dramatic…which I can be…but what I didn’t realize about this dish is that everything is put into one pan. Even the dry pasta!
Seriously? My first thought was…this can’t taste very good. My second thought was…it must taste starchy and gummy.
I finally decided that this recipe was so quick and simple that I had to try it. I had nothing to lose!
I layered everything in the pan as directed. Dry pasta, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic, onions and seasonings.
I’m here to tell you I was totally wrong about this recipe. It is fantastic! The fresh ingredients are tasty…there is no starchy or gummy taste at all. I love the garlicky flavor with just a tad of spice from the red pepper. This recipe makes 4 portions. Being that there is just Honey Bee and myself at home we have enough for leftovers for lunch the next day.
I hope you are as amazed as I was when I heard about this recipe that has now gone viral on the internet. This will be a new go-to meal in our house. It’s fairly healthy, I usually have all of these ingredients on hand, it’s delicious and can be made in less than 20 minutes. Dinner in a Flash!
