Food: One pot courgette mushroom pasta

Oh my I think I just died and went to heaven.

I spotted this dish on Damn Delicious whilst browsing for yet more courgette recipes. It appealed to me even more because of those magic words: one pot.

No need for cooking your veg and pasta in separate pans and then combining at the end, nope, this one pot pasta dish calls for you to put everything in one pan at the same time and cook.

I couldn’t think of anything more simple than cutting up courgettes into quarter pieces, slicing some mushrooms, chopping up garlic sprinkling some thyme and pouring boiling water over everything including the spaghetti.

When my pasta was nice and thick (how I tell it’s cooked) I then added the quarter cup of cream, I plumped for single cream and added the parmesan. I did buy some natural Greek yoghurt but I was a bit worried the taste wouldn’t be as nice but if you try it let me know!

Final step season and serve! Couldn’t be more easy and only took 20 minutes from prep until serve, a really quick and super tasty meal for even the most terrible of chefs! And there’s loads more of Damn Delicious’ One Pot dishes here.

Next on the courgette list is these ‘pizza boats’.
