One-Pot Simple Alfredo for a Classy and Simple Meal



One-pot meals are super popular right now, and for good reason. They make meal prep easy and clean up a piece of cake. But it's easy to assume that these meals aren't quite as good. Fortunately, this One-Pot Simple Alfredo keeps things classy and simple.

INGREDIENTS
1 package small shells
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4-1/2 package fresh spinach, chopped
1 can peas
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Nutmeg
Salt
Pepper


PREPARATION

  1. In a large pot, cook the shells according to package directions.
  2. Using the same pot (now drained of noodles and water), add cream and spinach over medium-high heat and heat until brought to a boil. 
  3. Remove from the heat and add in the cheese and peas. Mix well. 
  4. Top with nutmeg and salt and pepper.

It's really as easy as that. One pot, one strainer, one measuring cup, one knife and one stirring spoon to clean. Plus it will look and taste like you worked all night to prepare it. A win for everyone!

Sounds good to me. I don't know if the kids would like it, but my husband would.

This sounds like a comforting and filling meal for the bitter winter days. At least it is bitter here in the UK.

Love one pot meals! Sounds easy enough too! As a pasta lover I could definitely eat this, with a few modifications to make it vegan :)

I haven't made an alfredo dish in a while but I love that this is a one pot meal. I'll have to add it to my meal planning menu.
