I have to admit, I am usually not a fan of one-pot meals. Why? Because one component of the dish is usually compromised to cook everything for the same time at the same temperature. This is not the case here. You will probably want to bake some potatoes or cook some rice to go with it, but everything in this one pot comes out perfect!
I moved out of my apartment in Breckenridge today to move back to Boulder. Only one more semester of school in Boulder until I get to start culinary school! I am going to miss living in the mountains, the beautiful views from my front porch, the pace of life, and the cool weather. The one thing that I won’t miss about that apartment is the tiny piece-of-junk kitchen. When we first moved in, our stove would spark and pop every time we tried to turn it on- no it was not gas! This week’s Throwback Thursday recipe was made during this time, when I was afraid to cook anything on the stove. Instead I boiled the water for the pasta in the microwave to cook it!
