ONE Pot Pasta


One Pot Pasta, the name itself is self explanatory…. 

Weekends, i am lazy to make all the meals elaborate nor can i go out for all my meals. This is a recipe that needs 10 mins of preparation and another 15 to 20 minutes for it to cook, during which time i can laze around. 

If you have to come back home in the evening and prepare dinner, this is one dish that you should have on your list. Needs one casserole, chop and add everything, cook and its done.
