It’s been a while since I last cooked up my One-Pot Cheesy Pasta with Sausage. I decided to take the recipe out again for a quick spin. When I did, I hadn’t read my prior blog, I simply pulled out the recipe that I had saved and went for it. Well, sort of went for it. Hubby asked what we were having for dinner, and I told him One-Pot Cheesy Pasta Sausage Surprise. Why the surprise? Simple – because I didn’t know what kind of sausage was going into the pot. Yep, just like the first time I made the One-Pot Cheesy Pasta inspired by a recipe from The Slow Roasted Italian, I hadn’t a clue what the sausage might be. (How ironic is that! Imagine my surprise when I realized I had done it again.)
I don’t know about you, but more and more I seem to gravitate to one-pot; one-pan or one-skillet suppers. Oh sure, you could argue that one-pot suppers equate to less cleanup. That would be a strong argument – except I’m not the one assigned to KP duty. If I don’t need to be the one to clean up the mess, why should I care?
Have you seen all these one-pot pasta dishes floating around the internet? Don’t you just love the idea of everything cooking up in one pot? The particular recipe I chose to inspire me came from The Slow Roasted Italian. It was simply too pretty to pass up. And I was a bit curious, too. Uncooked pasta in the same pot as all the other ingredients, to be cooked together – how does that work?
