Think of this one-pot pasta limone as dinner in your back pocket: Most of the ingredients are in your pantry and it’s ready in practically zero time (well, 15 minutes to be precise). Best of all, it’s completely hands-off, because all you do is throw all the ingredients into a pot and boil them. Um, is it OK if we make this every night of the week?
