The comfort of one pot pasta extends beyond the knowledge that I (Hubby) won’t have to do many dishes.

Warm, winter, carby dinners coat my belly and make me happy and satiated in a way few other foods can. These Asian and Spanish inspired one pot pasta, winter, winner-dinners, are perfect for when it’s cool outside and toasty inside. Personally, I like to enJOY them while wearing fuzzy slippers.

Go from pan to plate in 30 minutes with this Asian-style pasta dish. Serve as a meatless main with the addition of tofu cubes at the end or add leftover chicken in with the veggies.

With these one-pot recipes, you don't even need to dirty a platter.  Live dangerously and plate directly from the pan at your table.  Get my favorite pan that can fit a whole chicken in 1/8th here
