One-pot pasta dishes are incredibly versatile, delicious, and hassle-free. When you’re pouring all the ingredients along with the dry pasta at the same time into the pot, you’re actually cutting back your cooking and cleaning time by more than half, without sacrificing the textures and flavors. Here, we’ve come up with a super easy and flavorful one-pot spaghetti recipe for you.
This specific one-pot spaghetti dish involves simple seasonal ingredients like chicken stock, fresh tomatoes, jarred capers, and canned artichokes. While tomatoes add a burst of sweet juice, the capers deliver a much-needed salty bite, cutting through all that sweetness of the tomatoes and the starchiness of the pasta. Finally, you can take everything up to a notch by adding a grating of mild cheddar-like briny Manchego cheese. Let’s look at the simple recipe:
Ingredients (4-6 Servings)
● Dry spaghetti, 1 pound
● Halved grape tomatoes, 1 pint
● Drained and halved artichoke hearts, 1 can or 14 ounces
● Drained capers, ¼ cup
● Chicken stock, 4 cups or 32 ounces
● Finely chopped fresh basil leaves, 1 packed cup
● Kosher salt, ¼ teaspoon
● Ground black pepper, 1/8 teaspoon
● Grated Manchego cheese, ½ cup (optional)
● Take a large lidded skillet and add the dry spaghetti, artichoke hearts, tomatoes, chicken stock, capers, and basil leaves. Season with salt and black pepper. ● Place the skillet over high heat and bring it up to a boil, while covering it with the lid. Stir occasionally to make sure that the pasta doesn’t stick to the bottom of the skillet. You’ll need 6-7 minutes for the stock to start boiling. ● As soon as the stock comes to a boil, uncover the skillet and stir the spaghetti well. Continue cooking without putting the lid on. Keep stirring occasionally. It’ll take about 13 minutes until the pasta becomes al dente and the stock reduces to a glutinous sauce. ● If the skillet looks dry and the pasta isn’t cooked through at this point, pour an additional ½ cup water or stock and keep cooking. The final cooking time will basically depend on your stove’s strength and your spaghetti brand. ● After the pasta is cooked through, remove the skillet from the heat. Taste and add more seasonings if needed. Sprinkle in Manchego cheese if you like, and then toss to combine. Serve the spaghetti dish warm, and enjoy!
You can refrigerate the leftover spaghetti (if there’s any) by storing it in an airtight container for a maximum of three days. Reheat the dish on the stovetop over low to medium heat. Add a little bit of water or chicken stock. Cook until it gets warmed through and then it’s ready for serving!
Jennifer Lawrence’s R-rated comedy No Hard Feelings has been acquired by Sony Pictures. The news has it that Sony Pictures had to compete with other big studios and streaming platforms in order to bag this project featuring Jennifer Lawrence. Read on to know more about this new acquisition.
The Plot of No Hard Feelings
According to the latest news, No Hard Feelings will revolve around a story set in Montauk, New York. The plotline bears a resemblance to Tom Cruise’s Risky Business from the early ‘80s as well as Cameron Diaz’s Bad Teacher. That has surely peaked our attention. Wouldn’t you want to watch it too?
Big Names From the Industry Involved in This Project
Apart from the Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, the film will be directed by Gene Stupnitsky, the writer and co-executive producer of NBC’s hit sitcom The Office. The dramedy No Hard Feelings will be a follow-up to Stupnitsky’s ensemble comedy titled Good Boys. With Gene’s involvement and star Jennifer Lawrence’s acting, the new comedy is said to set off the tones of Gene’s older projects that also had big names like Risky Business starring Tom Cruise and Bad Teacher with Cameron Diaz in the lead. In these projects, he worked as an executive producer and writer.
Jennifer Lawrence Shows No Signs of Stopping
After a big break from the screen, Jennifer Lawrence made a remarkable comeback with Netflix’s holiday release in 2019 titled Dark Phoenix.
