One pot pastas have been my life saver lately!
With an energetic toddler at home, I rarely find the time to spend more than half an hour in the kitchen.
Or should I rather say half an hour without seven tantrums in between?
No matter what mood Em is in come 5pm, I feel really comfortable knowing I’ll be able to 1) have a meal on the table and 2) I’ll only have one pot to wash.
Maybe I feel a little too comfortable with that, because lately we’ve been eating one pot pastas for approximately 7 out of 10 dinners – oops 🙂
That got me stuck into a bit of a rut, but how could I ever give up one pot pastas?
