CREAMY GARLIC PASTA
Starting off with the creamy garlic pasta recipe, I’m not a huge fan of garlic and to be completely honest – I hate it lol (I wasn’t lying when I said I was a picky eater)! But this is a super simple one pan pasta recipe. When I usually make pasta, I don’t really rely on a lot of cheese as I think I’m lactose intolerant but for this recipe, you don’t need to use any cheese at all (or any cream) which is perfect if you are lactose intolerant or dislike cheese. Instead, I use almond milk and the consistency of the cream is still the same as a regular cream.
- 150g of linguine pasta
- 250ml of almond milk
- 300ml of water
- 3-4 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 brown onion
- lemon juice
Pour 300ml of water, 150ml of almond milk, two pinches of salt, half a teaspoon of pepper, a couple of drops of lemon juice in a measuring cup and mix everything together and you have prepared the sauce!
Then, mince your cloves of garlic. The more you crush the garlic, the more aromatic it becomes. Then chop half a brown onion and crush a couple of almonds using your knife. Now, add 150g of linguine pasta and add all the ingredients in the previous step in a big pan which are the sliced onions, crushed onions and minced garlic. To add a bit more flavour, you can add a quarter of vegetable stock cube.
Then, pour the prepared almond sauce into the pan. Turn it on high heat and wait until it boils. Make sure to mix and separate the pasta, that way the water will get in between them and they will be well cooked.
Once it starts boiling, reduce the heat to low heat and set a timer for 8 minutes. Continue stirring and separating the pasta otherwise they will stick together. When the timer goes off, it still won’t be cooked properly – you need to boil it for 2-3 more minutes.
This is the time when you adjust the consistency of the pasta or add any extra ingredients you would like for a bit more flavour. In this case, I add around 100ml of almond milk. If you need to season it more, add a bit more salt and/or sugar. In addition, I add a bit of chilli flakes on top to make it tastier. And voila, all done!
This is another super fast recipe you can make and once again, it’s an one pan pasta recipe. If you are feeling lazing and want to make something quick & delicious, this is the recipe you need!
- 150g of spaghetti
- tomato paste
- 1/2 tbsp of minced garlic
- 1/2 brown onion
- cherry tomatoes
Take half of an onion and cut it in big slices. Then, take your cherry tomatoes and cut them in half. Take 2 stems of parsley and chop them. You can use some for cooking and others for decorations so feel free to take the amount you need.
Add 150g of spaghetti and all the ingredients you have chopped in the pan which are the cherry tomatoes, onions and parsley. Then, add three to four spoons of tomato paste, 500ml of water as well as 1/2 tbsp of minced garlic. Cook it for more than 20 minutes.
I like my food to be well cooked that’s the reason why I cook it for more than 20 mins but if you don’t want to overcook it, you can cook it under 15 minutes. Note that you have to stir constantly during the 20 minutes you are cooking, that way the spaghetti or ingredients won’t stick together and they won’t be stuck on the pan either. And we are done!
CHICKEN ALFREDO PASTA
Last but not least, for the last recipe we have Chicken Alfredo Pasta which is once again another one pan pasta recipe. I love one pan pasta recipes since you don’t need a lot of cooking pots and it saves you a lot of time when cleaning as well. If you are vegetarian like me, you can switch the chicken to another ingredient or simply not use it and it will instantly become a vegetarian recipe.
- 150g of penne pasta
- 300ml of water
- 150ml of milk
- 2 chicken breasts
- 3 cloves of garlic
- black pepper
- dried oregano
- parmesan cheese
To start off, heat your pan in medium heat and fry 2 chicken breasts (which you left in room temperature). Season each side of the chicken breast with a big pinch of salt. When the bottom becomes golden brown, turn them the other side and season once again with a big pinch of salt. Then, sprinkle some black pepper, dried oregano or other herbs over the chicken breasts.
After cooking them for 8 minutes (you can cook them under 5 mins), add around 100ml of water into the pan. Turn the chicken breasts and season them again. Slice 3 cloves of garlic into small pieces and add the chopped garlics in the pan & remove the chicken breasts while the pan is still wet.
Now, add 150g of penne pasta and pour 300ml of water & 150ml of milk, and let it cook for 10 minutes in medium heat. In the meantime, slice the chicken breasts and chop some parsley.
During the last 2/3 minutes, add the sliced chicken into the mix/pan. Cook them for an extra 5 minutes if you would like the chicken or the pasta to be cooked further. Add 2 tbsp of Parmesan cheese, salt as well as the chopped parsley. And we are done!
