Today I’m sharing a really easy recipe all done in one pot. Although the husband volunteers to clean the heavier stuff like pots and pans, I sometimes feel bad that he has to do the washing up after a long day at work. So this recipe is just perfect with only one pot to wash.
In case you guys think I’m a lazy bum, I clean as I cook la ok – so the chopping board, knife, bowls, cutlery and what-nots are all washed when I finish cooking! I just leave the final pot for him to wash hehe. Love his “service” especially when I use the slow cooker. So heavy!
This recipe basically needs just a few things: cooking cream, your choice of short pasta, meat/seafood to your liking and Parmesan cheese. If you don’t like cheese, I have another version of 10-min White Sauce here, which uses egg instead. To add some protein, I used chicken fillet and prawns. You could also add sliced shitake mushrooms, and of course, bacon would bring the flavour up a notch!
For chicken stock, I tend to avoid boxed/packaged chicken stock cos there’s no way I can control the flavour and I don’t like it – I find them too salty and overpowering. I like using Woh Hup’s concentrated chicken stock . Just remember the ratio of 1 teaspoon concentrated stock to 180ml water. I also use this in stir fries and soups.
I cooked for Ah-mm and Jason and they both commented (at different times) that dinner was delicious! Looks like this recipe is a keeper. I hope you try it!
