This One-Pot Asian Pasta is completely manageable for any busy weeknight. It’s easy, healthy, and has phenomenal flavor. Perfect when you want to go beyond the norm. Quick and delicious.
Ever since I shared my take on the popular One-Pot Wonder Pasta, I’ve gotten many many requests for an Asian version of the one-pot hit.
I grew up with parents who were always making homestyle Asian versions of one-pot pastas. We loved lunching on those big bowls of steamy hot noodles on Saturdays. The ingredients were always a wee bit different from the last time. There was no formally written down recipe of any sort.
That’s the way my folks roll when it comes to cooking. They measure in pinches, dashes, splashes, and sprinkles. I don’t know if they even own measuring spoons. Eyeballing works for them, because almost everything that comes out of their kitchen tastes absolutely amazing…
Following suit, I tend to make my Asian dishes using the dash ‘n splash method. It usually works out well, but once in awhile I can get a bit too sprinkle happy. Those are the times when I wish I’d written an actual recipe down.
I decided to make this super easy One-Pot Asian Pasta with simple and accessible ingredients (most grocery stores have a pretty decent Asian aisle now!)
And for the sake of my faithful readers, my kids (who may one day replicate this) and myself, I measured. Yes. I measured and wrote down an official recipe for this homestyle Asian pasta.
This One-Pot Asian Pasta boasts a fantastic savory flavor. It’s chock-full of healthy ingredients. And it’s done from start to finish in under an hour. I generally have it done between 30-40 minutes.
This dish is also beautifully flexible. Switch out the bok choy for napa cabbage, or use enoki mushrooms in lieu of the dried Shitake. Make it vegetarian by using veggie broth and omitting the chicken.
I’m so making this again for dinner tomorrow. Can’t wait. Giving myself high fives for finally writing the recipe down. Enjoy!Print
