It’s been over 7 years since Martha Stewart’s One-Pot Pasta recipe took the Internet by storm and got families all over the country out of their weeknight cooking ruts. The recipe editor who came up with this ingenious method had traveled to a small fishing village in Puglia, Italy, and was given the tip by the chef/server/son’s owner of the small local restaurant she’d decided upon for dinner one night.
MOST recipes that we cook were initially developed hundreds of years ago overseas and brought across borders by travelers or presidents or diplomats, where they are then tweaked and prodded to resemble something of the beloved original. One Pot Pasta is unique in that although it may not be anything new to the country of Italy, it’s still very new to the rest of the world. Once you try it, you may never boil pasta the same way again! Your kids can vary the base recipe with any number of ingredient combinations, which makes it all the more creative, playful, and fun. Enjoy!
