Happy June!  It’s the first of the month and it also just happens to be 30 Minute Thursday!  Not only do I have a 30 minute dinner recipe for you today, but I also have a one pot meal, which are quickly becoming my new favorites!

While it isn’t officially summer yet, it’s definitely feeling like summer around here so I’ve been eating like it’s summer lately!  To me summer food means lots of fresh, juicy produce and quick and easy meals that don’t require an oven.

There’s also a plus if they only require one pot because all this summer heat makes me feel pretty lazy!  You would think I’d be used to the hot temperatures by now, but every year around this time I dream of moving somewhere that has four seasons, rather than just perfect weather and way too hot weather :)

Description

A delicious and summery one pot pasta recipe!


Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups plain, unsweetened non-dairy milk of your choice
  • 4 cups penne pasta
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2-3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Add the water and milk to a medium sized pot and bring to a boil.  Make sure to keep a close eye on it because milk can boil over quickly.  Add the pasta and 1/2 teaspoon salt, stir and reduce to a simmer.  Cook until pasta is cooked through and most of the liquid has cooked off, 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Once pasta is finished cooking, remove from the heat and add the nutritional yeast, olive oil, cherry tomatoes, garlic and basil.  Stir until combined and serve immediately.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

    Quick and easy one pot meals are our favorite and I love anything caprese! This looks so fresh and delicious and perfect for summer!

    I LOVE this idea Izzy!! Caprese anything is always sooo good but since I can’t really do cheese anymore I haven’t had it! So smart to use the nutritional yeast! I always have a bag in the pantry!

    Love one-pot recipes! My husband, who usually does the dinner dishes, appreciates them too, haha. I’m a huge fan of cherry tomato sauces. If I’m at a loss for what to make for dinner, often I’ll whip up a fresh tomato sauce or just chop up some cherry tomatoes with basil & olive oil to throw in with pasta. So simple & perfect!

      Haha, it’s so nice to only have to clean one dish! Cherry tomatoes are so great to have around and throw into everything!
