Lazy Man's Pasta
I love making this pasta because it’s so simple and you can make it in one pot. You don’t have to cook the pasta separately, it cooks together with the sauce. It may sound strange at first since pasta is usually cooked separately in water, right? But not in this recipe. I took one pot out of the equation, which also means one pot less to wash.
The pasta comes out really tasty and works really well as a side dish for lunch. And I’ve already mentioned how easy it is to make.
Makes 3-4 servings
200 grams pasta (any shape you like)
1 medium onion
1 Tbsp ketchup
100 grams tomato paste
4 cups of water (it sounds like a lot but it’s not)
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp Moroccan paprika
1 tsp dried parsley (not mandatory)
1 Tbsp chicken bouillon
Ground black pepper
1. Heat a pot with 3 Tbsp of oil, finely chop the oil and add to the pot, sauté until slightly golden, add the other ingredients including the water and bring to a boil, then lower the heat to medium. It’ll look like soup and that’s just fine.
2. Break the pasta in half and add to the pot. Cook on medium heat for around 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Before removing from the heat, check that the pasta is cooked enough.
3. Once you remove the pot from the stove, let it stand for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. The pasta absorbs the sauce and flavors even better that way.
