The Miracle Martha

Every once in a while, a recipe or food technique comes around, and people who read recipes recreationally and cook as a hobby (not always the same people), get excited.  A few years ago the recipe that was "revolutional" was Jim Lahey's no-knead bread technique.

Last month, Martha Stewart Living published a recipe for one-pot spaghetti.  Within days, almost every food blog I read had mentioned it.  I saw the recipe several times on Pinterest and got a little excited.  A recipe with fresh ingredients that you throw in a pot, boil and get spaghetti?  Well, I tried the one pan pasta recipe and yes, this is something that everyone can make, and the recipe tastes great.  The pasta cooks simultaneously in broth which cooks down to make a richly flavored sauce.  The recipe takes about 15 minutes to make and the ingredients are all ones I had in my garden or can easily be purchased at the grocery store.

does yours look so pretty when you put it all in the pot? or did they just do that for the picture?
