A Prep-Ahead, One-Pan Pasta Dinner Party

A Prep-Ahead, One-Pan Pasta Dinner Party

Thanks to Rob’s role as a community advocate with SF Urban Riders – a group promoting off-road cycling in the city – our dining room is often the scene of committee meetings and work sessions these days. After we worked with friends to make bunting and trail bells for a booth at Tour de Fat, a few people stayed for a casual weeknight dinner.

Orecchiette one pan pasta recipe

Before everyone came over to work, I made the “broth” for the pasta by combining greek olives, chickpeas, rosemary, garlic, red pepper flakes and white wine in a big pot. When it was time eat, all I had to do was bring it to a boil, add the pasta and stir while cooking for about 15 minutes. I added kale instead of arugula at the end and served it with a big salad and some warm garlic bread.

A delicious, super easy weeknight dinner menu for hungry volunteers!

    Hi Emily,

    I’m a long time reader and love your blog and following your adventures. For this pasta, do you just boil the pasta in the wine and other flavors as if it were the water? I’ve not tried this before!

    Thanks, looks wonderful,

      Yep, you’ve got it Rachel! But you cook it until all the water is soaked up by the pasta. The link goes to the official Martha Stewart recipe.
