A delicious one-pot pasta recipe with tomatoes and mozzarella
Here’s how it works: First you need to get all the fresh ingredients in the right size. To do this, cut the onion into small cubes, chop the garlic cloves, quarter the cherry tomatoes (if they are particularly small, it is enough to halve them), as well as cut the mozzarella balls into quarters.
Then put all the ingredients except the water and the mozzarella balls in a saucepan in which you have already heated a good drop of olive oil. Make sure the onion, garlic, and tomato paste are on the bottom so that these ingredients get the roasted flavors.
After less than a minute, pour everything down with a liter of water, stir intensively and let everything simmer under the lid for 12 minutes on medium heat. Then add mozzarella balls cut into four, a good pinch of salt and pepper and a drop of olive oil. If the water is low, add more, it shouldn’t burn anything.
Let the mozzarella soak for another five minutes on a low heat, then stir again and season your delicious one-pot pasta with tomatoes and mozzarella again with plenty of salt and pepper. And then the dish is ready.
Enjoy your meal!
