One Pot Spaghetti


Confession time, I hate making a ‘spag bowl’. Why? Well making the spaghetti separate to the sauce is a laborious job both because of timings and I never really get the sauce to mix well with the spaghetti once plated. But I got enlightened watching one of my many YouTube food gods. When I saw that title “How to make… One Pan Pasta” . My heart skilled a small but monumental beat. I sat there thinking of course! How have I not thought of this yet? It’s simple, quick and the sauce becomes one with the pasta. Of course me being me I had to modify some of the ingredients to make it more appealing to my taste buds. That’s the beauty if this recipe it’s so easy to make it yours.
