Easy One Pan Spaghetti with Cherry Tomatoes

Easy Spaghetti With Cherry TomatoesSome days, the faster I can make dinner the better. Today is one of those days and this easy one pan spaghetti with cherry tomatoes and broccoli takes 18 minutes, including prep. I mean it. I’ve even made it in 16 minutes!

This is one of my easy one pan meals where everything cooks in one pan, including the spaghetti. I use thin spaghetti because it cooks in 9 minutes but if you use regular spaghetti you will have to add a little extra time. Stirring is important to keep the spaghetti from sticking so stir it vigorously to separate the strands.

I rarely drain pasta any more. I’m making more and more one pan meals and besides being less work, there’s less cleanup – Bonus! Cherry tomatoes and fresh broccoli are always available so if you keep them on hand, you can always make an easy, healthy dinner in less than 20 minutes.

Photos from You (August)

I love seeing my recipes made in other kitchens and in other countries so I appreciate your saying where you are from. You can send your photo to:


“Pics of potato Pancakes at the start of frying, in an electric skillet; and a pic of the finished pancakes with the rest of dinner: Kielbasa and Sauerkraut, Mustard, Applesauce, Sour Cream served on the side to take care of individual taste sensibilities. As you can see, I use a less oil than many recommend. Still it needs to be there for the pancakes to finish brown and crispy. I get four generous pancakes from two potatoes. ~ David Kapral.”

~Kielbasa & sauerkraut sound heavenly to this Polish cook. Thank you for your photos. ~ jenny

Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Almond Flour Chocolate Chip CookiesI was surprised how well these turned out. I never thought I could make cookies without flour but for anyone looking to reduce carbs, or wanting gluten-free cookies, you can still make delicious healthier cookies at home. These really are chocolate chunk cookies because I rarely use chocolate chips any more, preferring to use a healthier dark chocolate bar. To get the health benefits of dark chocolate you need a bar with at least 70% cacao and that’s what I use for chocolate chips. I just take a 70% bar and cut it into strips and then the strips into chunks.

Dark Chocolate Chunks for BakingI’m also reducing sugar in my baking these days so these low carb cookies have less sugar and I don’t miss it at all. The texture of cookies made with almond flour is a little more chewy, but I really like it.

I’m planning to try more baking with almond flour and reducing carbs wherever I can so I’ll be posting anything I make that turns out. And these easy almond flour dark chocolate chunk cookies did turn out. Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones
