A Great Recipe To Chef Up One Pan Pasta

image via – YouTube.com

Pasta is one of the quickest, easiest, and most versatile types of food to cook and it can be prepared it in countless different ways. Even people who are far from culinary aces know how to whip up a pot of steaming spaghetti. The most common way to go about cooking pasta is in the centuries old traditional manner which starts off the process with a large pot of water.

Some people add a few shakes of salt or a drop of olive oil to the water before placing the pot on the stove and heating it to a boil. The pasta then gets dropped in and cooked until it’s done. All that’s left to do is add on some sauce, pesto, butter, seasonings, or whatever else you prefer, it’s that easy!

However, there’s a better and more efficient way to properly whip up a delicious batch of the family favorite food. Cooking pasta with this alternative method eliminates the all too common problem of having to cook sauces and sides in different pans and therefore cuts down on the pots you have to watch and then clean afterwards. Instead, you only need to use one single pan to cook all of the ingredients in and you’re left with perfectly prepared noodles that the whole family will love.

Below is a list of ingredients and directions on how to make one pan pasta. The accompanying video shows you every step of the process and exactly how delicious and scrumptious this dish looks so be sure to check it out for more information.


– 200 grams spaghetti – 200 grams cherry tomatoes, sliced in half – 100 grams baby spinach leaves – 1 small onion, finely sliced
3 garlic cloves, finely sliced – 1 red chili, finely chopped – small handful of basil leaves, roughly chopped – 2 tablespoons extra – virgin olive oil – 50 grams pecorino cheese, grated – sea salt and ground pepper, to taste

First slice the cherry tomatoes in half and then finely slice both the onion and garlic cloves. The red chili should be finely chopped up but the basil only needs to be roughly chopped. Take a large frying pan and place the pasta on the bottom center, then arrange the onions on both sides.

Add in the tomatoes, spinach, garlic, and chili to both sides of the pan and sprinkle the chopped basil atop it. Drizzle on the olive oil, shake some salt and pepper on, then add 600 ml of water (or chicken stock).

Place the pan over medium-high heat and bring it to a boil. For al dente pasta, cook for approximately 9 minutes, stirring regularly with tongs. For a more well done, softer pasta cook for a minute or two longer.

Remove the pan from the stove when most of the liquid has evaporated and created a yummy sauce. Add in the pecorino cheese, a little more basil if you’d like, and salt and pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy!

A Great Recipe To Poach 12 Eggs at Once.

image via : facebook.com

Eggs are one of the most versatile foods to cook with and eat. They’re often a main ingredient in many recipes and can be cooked by themselves in lots of different ways. The fact that a dozen of them are inexpensive and widely available makes them a staple to have on hand. Plus, they make a great addition to main dishes or as a side accompaniment to a meal.

Even people who don’t happen to be master chefs can easily whip up a batch of scrambled, hard boiled, or fried eggs. However, when it comes to poaching an egg, that definitely falls on the more difficult side of the egg cooking-spectrum.

Poaching is a cooking method whereby a food is dropped and simmered in liquid. Usually water, milk, or some type of stock is used and it’s an ideal way to cook foods which tend to fall apart when cooked other ways. That’s why many recipes involving eggs, fish, chicken, and fruits are poached.

Mastering the technique can be tricky but if you follow the accompanying tutorial from the Food and Wine Test Kitchen’s Justin Chapple you’ll get it correct and soon you can be poaching up to 12 eggs simultaneously!

First off, you are going to need water, a muffin tin, and a dozen fresh large eggs. Start by pre-heating the oven to 350 degrees and then place one tablespoon of water in each of the cups on the muffin tin. Next, crack one egg into each slot, right on top of the water, and immediately place them into the heated oven.

Bake for 8-10 minutes and you’ll know they’re done if they match up with the following description- the egg white should be nice and firm and the yolk jiggly. To help keep them intact, use a slotted spoon to scoop them from the tin.

Also, if there’s any excess moisture simply place them on a paper towel lined plate and then sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. In the end, you should end up with neatly cooked egg whites that ensconce a still runny, slightly creamy, liquid yolk.

When you dig a fork into them and pierce the whites the yellow yolk will spill out and that’s what the ideal poached egg should look like. Bon Appétit!!

She Places A Mug Over An Egg. The Final Result Is A Delightful Unexpected Surprise!

YUM! A light and delicious, sweet treat, that’s easy too! This quick take on a classic meringue is a perfect dessert for the warm summer months. Only two ingredients and minimal effort until you’ve got yourself sugar heaven. Not only that, but you can get creative and combine almost anything in your kitchen with the fluffy cookies, or just eat them plain. Most people have enough kicking around to make this a full gourmet course at the last minute.

Start by cracking one egg onto a plate. Place a small cup over the egg yoke for a really simple way to separate the whites. Pour the egg white into a small bowl full of confectioner’s sugar If the egg you are using is a little one, you might consider adding another half of an egg’s white.

Mix the egg whites and powdered sugar by hand until the ingredients form a ball. The process will be similar to kneading bread dough, with an identical result. Prepare a microwave sized plate by placing a paper towel on top of it.

Next, you’ll want to break off small chunks of your meringue dough and form them into balls, much like making cookies except without a sticky mess.

Position the balls on the paper towel covered plate with ample room between them for expanding. Microwave the plate and dough balls for one to two minutes, until they look like meringue.

Remove your treat from the microwave and enjoy with fresh berries, ice cream, fruit, coffee, nut butters, or anything you can think of!
