when you want to make pasta and intend to add lots of vegetables and maybe some shrimp, try cooking it all in one pot. I love how the flavors blend and what could be easier. You have to think about the different cooking times, but so what. Only one pot to wash and then, when drained, toss with some olive oil and maybe a little grated aged Asiago cheese.
It is a meal you can make with out shopping. Everyone has some pasta and some frozen veg, if not fresh. Change the veg, the cheese, the herbs…it’s all good.
