There are some things that I love about student housing; for example, that my landlords change light bulbs for us and that I can borrow my flatmate’s top when we decide to go to the Union at the last minute. But washing dishes by hand? Not one of them. Luckily, this one-pot pasta dish makes cleaning up easy. All you have to do is throw all of the ingredients into a pot, simmer it over the stove, and voilà – you can enjoy your rich, creamy white-wine pasta without having to worry about spending your evening scrubbing dishes. Yes, please.
- 250g linguine
- 1 can artichoke antipasti
- 50g parmesan
- 250mL white wine
- 550mL vegetable stock
- 1 tbsp butter
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- Crushed chillies (optional)
- Using a strainer, drain the artichoke antipasti until there is no oil remaining.
- In a large pot, combine the linguine, artichokes, parmesan, white wine, vegetable stock, butter, and minced garlic cloves.
#Forkin’ Great Tip: Feeling lazy? Tesco sells pre-minced garlic, so you don’t have to waste time chopping your own.
- Over high heat, bring the pasta to a boil. Then lower the temperature and let the pasta simmer uncovered over low heat for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- When the pasta sauce becomes thick and creamy, add a dash of salt and two handfuls of spinach. Stir until the spinach wilts.
- Add crushed chillies and serve.
This pasta recipe is a great option for those chilly winter nights when you’re craving something buttery and rich to eat while you catch up on Celebrity Hunted. Plus, the recipe is easy to customize. Swap out the butter and Parmesan for dairy-free alternatives if you’re vegan, or sprinkle toasted pine nuts on top for more texture. More is better, am I right?
