Putting a delicious pasta dish on the table doesn’t have to be difficult at all. With a few simple ingredients and the right kitchen utensils, you can quickly enjoy a tasty meal. In this blog article I would like to share with you what you need to make a tasty and simple pasta dish. A tasty and simple pasta dish: what do you need?
A good pasta dish always starts with fresh ingredients. Look for the best quality pasta you can find. For example, opt for a traditionally made tagliatelle or penne. You can also enrich your pasta with fresh vegetables such as zucchini, peppers or mushrooms. Garlic and onions also add a lot of flavor to your dish. And of course a good Parmesan cheese should not be missing for that extra touch of savory.
The right cooking pots
A sturdy cooking pot is indispensable in every kitchen. Fill your cooking pot with plenty of water and add a pinch of salt before adding the pasta. Bring the water to a boil and cook the pasta al dente according to the package instructions. Once cooked, drain the pasta and keep a little of the cooking liquid to bind your sauce later.
Sauté pan for the sauce
In a sauté pan you can perfectly stir-fry vegetables and prepare your sauce. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in the sauté pan and sauté the finely chopped garlic and onions until soft and fragrant. Then add the sliced vegetables and sauté until tender but still crunchy. Season with salt, pepper and possibly some Italian herbs.
The finishing touches
Now comes the fun part: bringing all the flavors together! Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and mix well. If the sauce is too thick, you can add some of the reserved cooking liquid to improve the consistency. Toss the whole thing around and let the pasta warm through. Taste and add additional spices or salt if necessary.
Serve your pasta dish with a generous amount of freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a handful of fresh basil leaves. The contrast between the salty cheese and the fresh herbs is sure to spoil your taste buds.
And voila! With just a few fresh ingredients and the right kitchen utensils, you have a delicious and simple pasta dish on the table. Feel free to experiment with different vegetables and herbs to add your own unique twist to the dish. And don’t forget to enjoy every bite.
Enjoy your meal! XO Frieda
