My One Pot Wonder Pasta Dinner 

It was my night to make dinner and while I love cooking, I hate all the kitchen mess that is left after cooking. 

So what is better than a one pot wonder pasta dinner!   
One pot! I used our Paderno Dutch oven for the entire meal. I began by adding a couple tablespoons of EVOO to the pot, got it hot and then added a diced up half an onion. 

I cooked the onion until it was translucent and then added the sliced yellow pepper to the pot. 

  

I let the  yellow peppers get softened up from the heat before adding two cups of veggie stock, one cup of 2% milk and a couple dollops of butter. 

  

Once the pot of liquid reached a boil I added just over half of a 375 gram box of spaghetti noodles. 
  

I reduced the heat to a medium low to keep the pot simmering so that the noodles softened up and cooked into the sauce. 

  

It was awesome to see them melting into the liquid in the pot!  

  

I let them noodles cook until they had absorbed nearly all the liquid in the pot. 

Then I added a little pile (1/2 cup) of feta cheese – why feta? because that’s what I had in the fridge! 

  

Honestly, this was a great tasting pasta! Thr rich and creamy sauce was cooked right into and onto the noodles making every bite a taste sensation. 

  

The best part? Other than the fact that I only had one pot, my knife, tongs, and a cutting board to clean up? 

The kidlets loved the pasta! That’s the real win! A one pot wonder.
