One Pot Pasta

#ThisIsGenious DSCF7808

Seriously, you chuck everything in a pan and leave it to boil for 15 minutes. There is one chopping board and one pan to wash up – and you can take leftovers to work the next day. Also it is completely delicious, healthy, versatile and low fructose! We are on for a winner here.

As mentioned in my last post, I have been super busy lately which can make it hard to cook a decent meal. I have used this recipe frequently and swapped ingredients here and there – in particular I have added whatever vegetables I have to bulk it up with goodness.
