Single pot pasta with sausages and vegetables for a quick dinner on a weekday

Of all the One pot recipes, this one pot pasta dish is my absolute favorite and that is because it takes only 30 minutes to make it and it’s a complete dinner.

The recipes that take very few ingredients are everybody’s favorite,  Just throw in assorted vegetables, sausages, herbs, cream and some milk together in a pan along with Spaghetti or Fusilli  or whatever pasta you have in the pantry and let it simmer till the pasta gets cooked. So whenever I find myself short on time, or crave for Italian food, I end up making this simple one dish meal.

So how did you like my quick dinner idea? Make it and post your feedback.

Very important tip

Never use fresh hand made pasta for one pot pasta dinner, this recipe works best with store bought ready made pasta.

Trivia about Pasta

Pasta is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine, with the first reference dating to 1154 in Sicily. It is also commonly used to refer to the variety of pasta dishes. Typically, pasta is a noodle made from an unleavened dough of a durum wheat flour mixed with water and formed into sheets or various shapes, then cooked and served in any number of dishes. It can be made with flour from other cereals or grains, and eggs may be used instead of water. Pastas may be divided into two broad categories, dried (pasta secca) and fresh (pasta fresca).

One pot pasta – ready to be served

 The pasta was ready. Rich and creamy to be served onto the plates after a few more sprinkle of allspice and pepper. I did not have parsley, but if you have, garnish the pasta with fresh parsley to make it tastier.

Ingredients

  • Butter 2 Tbsp
  • Sausages 3-4 (I prefer the smoked variety)
  • Onions 1 large, chopped finely
  • Garlic 1 Tsp chopped very finely
  • Green Peas 1/2 cup
  • Carrots 1 peeled and chopped
  • Beans 8-9 chopped
  • Chicken broth 2 cups
  • Milk 1 cup
  • Cream 100 gms
  • Pepper to taste
  • Allspice 1 Tsp crushed
  • Parmesan 3-4 Tbsp grated

Method

Step 1

Parboil the vegetables with a bit of salt and keep aside

Step 2

Heat butter in a deep skillet and add onion and garlic. Fry for a few seconds before adding the diced sausages to it. Let it cook till onions are soft and sausages lightly browned. Add the parboiled vegetables and let them get coated with butter completely.

Step 3

Add milk to the skillet and half the cream (I used Amul Fresh Cream) Let it boil and add the dry pasta along with warm chicken broth. Add some more salt, half the allspice and a pinch of pepper.

Step 4

Cover and cook until the pasta is al dente. This takes about 12 minutes. Keep checking for the sauce. If you find it going dry, add water or chicken broth.

Step 5

After the pasta is done, check for salt, season with more pepper and allspice and sprinkle the Parmesan.

Step 6

Mix well and serve.

      Thank you, Ankita Suman. I will soon post an entry about chicken broth on the website, but here it is for you:
      Chicken bones or chicken pcs with bones (3-5), 1 liter water, 1 onion, 2-4 cloves garlic, 1 bay leaf, 1″ cinnamon, a pinch of dried rosemary (or thyme), 1/2 tsp of salt. Boil in pressure cooker for about 15 minutes (1 whistle and reduced heat for 10 mins). Strain when the pressure drops, Use immideately or store it in the freezer for future use.
      Chicken bones that remain after making broth are soft and make very good snack for pets (cats and dogs) or they can be composted
