The One-Pot Meal That Redefines Simple
Even the most basic pasta dishes usually require two pots: one for the pasta, one for the sauce. Not this extraordinary recipe, though. It starts with you cooking garlic and onion in a large, heavy-bottomed pot; then you add diced tomatoes, chopped kale, basil...and a whole pound of pasta, along with four cups of water. Let the pot simmer until the pasta is done to your liking, fold in cheese and serve. No separate pasta pot and no draining required—it's a game-changer.
