One pot pastas

Do you know the One Pot Pasta? This is’a revolutionary cooking technique which allows you to cook both the pasta and its filling in the same pan.

You need a saucepan or casserole large enough to hold the raw pasta, the ingredients for the sauce and a certain amount of water. The whole thing cooks over low heat for several minutes to obtain at the end a greedy and very melting result.

The water used to cook the pasta is completely absorbed, or used for the sauce and there is not even a need to drain!

Significant time savings the guarantee of a pasta dish that is never dry and especially much less dishes!

The choice of ingredients

For this recipe, you will need pasta, mushrooms and roquefort cheese. For the pasta, you can use whatever you prefer. Farfalle, penne, spaghetti… It’s up to you to choose according to your desires and the contents of your cupboard. You can also use wholemeal or semi-wholemeal pasta. You may need to increase the cooking time slightly.

In the recipe, we used Roquefort, a blue cheese cousin of gorgonzola. If you don’t like its taste or if you don’t have any on hand, you can choose another much less strong cheese such as Brie, Comté, Cantal, Cheddar, Pecorino or Chevre. The important thing is to have a cheese that melts relatively well to give this creamy aspect to the sauce!
