Are you looking for a quick dinner that is ready in less than 20 minutes. True to its name, this pasta cooks all in one pot with its sauce and is ready to eat in half the time you will take to make it the traditional way.


Also, no butter or cream used here. Cheese – optional. Quick, easy and healthy.
You can’t beat that. 🙂

Ingredients: 
Whole milk – 1 1/2 cup
Water or broth – 1 1/2 cup
Uncooked pasta – 8 oz, use any pasta of your choice. I have used fettuccini here
Olive oil – 1 tbsp
Garlic cloves – 3, minced
Onion – 1 small, chopped
Red pepper – 1/2 chopped
Spinach leaves – 1/2 cup chopped
Salt to taste
Black pepper 1/2 tsp
Red chilly flakes – as desired, optional
Parmesan cheese – 1/3 cup, optional. I did not add.

Method:
1. Heat oil in a large skillet and add the minced garlic and onion. Cook them for a few minutes.
2. Add in the red pepper and spinach and cook for a minute.
3. Next add in the milk, water, salt and pepper and let it just come to a simmer.
4. Break the pasta and add it to the boiling milk mixture. Mix gently and let the pasta cook for about 10 minutes at medium low, stirring every few minutes.
5. Cook just until the pasta is tender and switch off the flame.
6. Finally add in the chilly flakes and Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.

A few years ago I would have laughed at the prospect of writing a food blog. Expecting someone to guide you on a recipe whose own cooking experience before her marriage has been next to nil is quite unbelievable. A foodie husband and his love for socializing ensured I do get a lot of cooking practice. And when I finally decided to be a SAHM, it gave me an opportunity to enhance my culinary skills. A lot of it was inspired from a number of food groups on Facebook and some very talented people I met there. So thanks to all my family and friends who constantly motivated me to work on a blog, here it is. So come, join me on this delightful journey, where I promise to serve you Love daily, well almost.

  1. Nice recipe, I will for sure try it out! I’m not a fan of red pepper and red chili flakes (because of stomac problems), what would you suggest me as alternative?

    • You can definitely add green pepper if you like it. Or mushrooms. Frankly, just toss in your favorite veggies. Even chicken breast would be great. Just adjust cooking time accordingly. Chilly flakes are totally optional.
      Glad you liked it. Thanks.
