Garlic, Parmesan and Basil One Pot Pasta

Scouring Pinterest for a nice quick meal, I always stumble across one pot pasta recipes. They instantly appealed to me because the prep time is minimal and all you have to do once you put all the ingredients in is stir occasionally! Perfect for busy mums.

So here is a recipe I adapted to try out a one pot pasta dish. 


1 table spoon olive oil
4 gloves of garlic, minced
2 cups of chicken stock
1 cup of milk
2 tablespoons of butter
Salt & peper to taste
1/4 cup of parmesan cheese
Chopped parsley


Heat oil in a large pan (I use a wok which worked well) on a medium heat, add garlic and cook for about 1-2 minuets stirring frequently.

Stir in chicken stock, milk, butter and pasta and then season to taste.

Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked (around 18 minuets). 

Then stir in parmesan and parsley until sauce is thick. If you find the source too thick for your liking just add more milk.

Serve immediately and add parsley to garnish.

This dish is so delicious and everyone in the house finished theirs and asked for more. Massive hit for Darcie too!
Have you tried any one pot pasta recipe's? What's your favourite?
