  1. Yum!!!! This looks amazing! I think I want to be a clean a bit every day type, but I usually end up putting it off. I have a friend coming to stay for the weekend later today and beginning of this week I was like – i’ll do a little cleaning every day, it’ll totally be manageable. Of course I left it all until today!

    • Thank you Liz! Oh dear, that happens to me all the time! And then I find myself having to clean and tidy so much I don’t even know where to start! Have a good cleaning day πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you for a 1 pot recipe Nora! Because last night I went nuts and cooked a dinner than required 3 pans and 1 baking sheet. Clean up was awful. But a 1 pot meal I can handle. This looks so good! And I love that you used Orecchiette. When I was little, I called them “pasta bowls” because they looked like little bowls.

    • Ha, I know those kinds of meals! My mom used to cook with a gazillion pans and leave us kids to clean up afterwards – so now I love 1 pot meals even more πŸ˜€ What a cute story with the Orecchiette! They really look like tiny bowls!

    • Thanks Ashley! Oh you don’t have long to go now, do you?! I’m admiring all moms with more than one kid – I can barely manage to throw things into one pot with my baby girl πŸ™‚

  3. I love one pot pastas. By the time I get home from picking up the kids and doing after school actives, I am drained. This pasta looks like the perfect weeknight meal. Thanks Nora! Ps I love the look of those pasta shells too. Wonder if I could find them in my lil town. PS I agree with Ashley, your pictures are gorgeous! Pinned. πŸ™‚

  4. I’m so impressed you post things that fast! My photos seem to sit on my computer long past leftovers are gone. I need to get more motivated!! πŸ™‚ Your pasta looks yummy! I love easy meals I don’t have to slave over when I get home from work!

  5. I’m making this tonight! It looks so yummy and simple! I couldn’t find that pasta in my local store so I’m just using little shells…I’m sure it’ll still turn out ok! I’m excited…1 pot meals are a staple in a home where we both work 2 jobs!!

    • Oh I hope you’ll like it Sarah! One pot meals are definitely the best dinner option when life gets busy. I’m sure little shells will work just as fine.

  6. Hi, I was wondering what I can substitute the heavy cream for to make it healthier? Will anything work or does it have to be heavy cream? Thanks! :]

    • Hi Sandrea, what a good idea to make this healthier! You can try using low-fat milk and just boiling it for a few minutes until it’s reduced and slightly thickened. OR you can use low-fat milk and stir in a few tablespoons low-fat sour cream, cream cheese or ricotta to thicken it. Hope you’ll like it!
