Last weekend I found myself overly uninspired with my collection of take-out menus and decided to search for a simple recipe for a home-cooked meal. Usually the main reason I don’t cook too often is due to time, but in reality, there are many simple recipes for one-pot meals that are easy to prepare and completed in under 30 minutes. When I don’t know what to eat, I always turn to pasta, so this simple Fusilli al Telefono recipe was a great find! You honestly cannot go wrong with the combination of tomato, basil and cheese. I already had most ingredients in the refrigerator and pantry so preparation took no time at all. The longest part was waiting for the pasta to cook (which I used to enjoy a nice glass of red while taking in all the aromas of tomato and basil from the simmering sauce).
Extra bonus – cleanup was a breeze as well!
