Have we talked about skillet-pasta?
A fast, easy, very-low-effort meal solution. You can start the pasta as you consider what you want to prepare along with it.

1. In a skillet, combine dry pasta, cover with about 3x as much (by volume) tap water (NOT boiling).
2. Heat over medium heat and as the pasta cooks, add vegetables, aromatics, and anything you want. This is a great place to round up those bits & scraps in your vegetable drawer.
3. The pasta takes the same amount of time as it would in boiling water (about 10-12 minutes) and the water will be absorbed when done. Your pasta will taste richer than boiled as all the starchy water is concentrated in the pasta.
4. Finish with salt, pepper, cheese, lemon, etc.

I prepared this with broccoli di cicco, Summer peppers and finished with Sungold tomatoes.
Keep this in mind in the busy back-to-school days, when meal planning seems too much.
