Pinterest Win! One Pot Zucchini Mushroom Pasta

If you’re like me, which is to say, addicted to Pinterest, then I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of the same recipes floating around. Certain recipes get pinned hundreds of thousands of times.

But I want to know, do they actually work? Or is it just a pretty picture with a bogus recipe? So I tried this one out for you. You’re welcome.

One Pot Zucchini Mushroom Pasta

The recipe can be found on the original blog here.

I made a few adjustments to the recipe, because I was only cooking for two (the recipe calls for 1 pound of pasta? Whew). Basically, I just added the amounts of ingredients that looked like enough to me, and luckily the recipe easily accommodates those changes. So if you’re cooking for one, two, or for all five of your roommates, this recipe is really adjustable.

Don’t have thyme? Don’t worry, I didn’t either. I used a couple dashes of oregano, which I really liked. Basil or Italian seasoning would work well with this dish.

Now for the most important part; how did it taste? I think that every dinner should have a protein, but I didn’t even miss it with this dish. It has a light, creamy, Italian taste.  All of the vegetables work really well together, and parmesan is always a winner. Those things, along with the pasta, fill you up better than I thought just vegetables and pasta would.

The only thing to be careful of is how much water you use, because otherwise, your sauce turns out a little watery and not so delicious. If I made this again, I would be sure to salt the water that everything boils in, add the other seasonings sooner, and drain off some of the water to avoid the watery taste my sauce had a hint of.

All in all, this recipe is easy to follow, easy to adjust, and you only have to clean one pot afterwards! Win win win.

  2. What Not to Bring in Casinos

    Online Casino gaming is slowly becoming a very popular
    method for a large number for gamblers and leisure players alike.
    There are many sites that provide the best online gaming experience.
    The fun in playing emanates from actually wagering real money and of course winning real cash.
    Most online offer 24×7 gaming and customer care.
    However it is always advised to one and all, whether or not the gamer is a beginner or
    perhaps a pro that they must keep abreast with online gambling information from news etc, to learn which casinos are
    safe and which are not.

    Statistics by Nielsen Media Research in 2010 showed that in the UK alone, online gambling
    traffic was up by 40% over 2009. It also discovered that 46% of online players were females and
    about 50% were middle aged men with above average salaries.
    And in the US, the National Annenberg Survey of the Young found out that some 16% of college-aged men visited
    online casinos at least a month, up dramatically over 2008 figures.

    To start playing for the money, it is imperative that the player deposits a certain amount of
    money. This is done to activate the bonus accounts. It is therefore essential that
    a player counters just how much that is said to be deposited for you to
    transfer credits from the bonus account towards the real account.
    In most cases, the total amount is about 20 to 50 dollars with
    regards to the online casinos. Looking at the
    fine print is highly advised.

    Backgammon Board. An online game could have most prominent on the computer screen the backgammon board.
    It is separated into four quadrant each with six points, or triangles with alternating colors
    which each board has 24. On the board, players will each have
    a house or inner board as well as an outer board distinguished
    from the other by a raised bar.

    Players may have the privilege of getting guarantees which might be bigger for each and every tournament they
    participate in. The frequency of important tournaments happening is also more regular
    since they could happen twice a single week and might take place in several locations.
    Added to this, the poker promotions you are free to see
    in TV attract a number of people, celebrities and commoners alike.
    This would assure you that every poker game which you attend to comes
    complete with a number of people waiting to witness the greater experienced players doing his
    thing. What makes it more interesting is always that not only are these
    tournaments for the harder seasoned players, newbies also
    can participate and so they can do so in the comforts of these very own houses.

  3. This strategy may also help to keep your coupons in a nice and requested.
    The Weekend magazine is an excellent resource regarding deals on pretty much every imaginable solution,
    but you can find additional assets that can also come in useful.

  4. When working with deals, it’s advisable not to generally instantly rely on them.
