One Pot Spaghetti Puttanesca / Špageti Puttanesca iz jednog lonca

Y’all know I love one pot dishes and I love pasta. Hence, one pasta dishes are pretty high on my list of life’s priorities. Spaghetti Puttanesca have been around for ages, so here’s my own version of this Italian classic.

IMGP8633

METHOD:

Add the olive oil and cherry tomatoes to a deep skillet on medium heat. Bring to a sizzle, cover with a lid and cook for about 5-10 minutes, until tomatoes are blistered and softened, while giving it an occasional stir. In the meantime, finely chop up anchovies and sundried tomatoes, thinly slice garlic and roughly chop up the olives.

Once the tomatoes are blistered, add in anchovies, sundried tomatoes, garlic, olives, red pepper flakes and oregano. Cook for a few minutes until everything is fragrant before adding in spaghetti, salt, pepper and water. Make sure that the spaghetti is covered in water, bring to a gentle simmer, cover tightly with a lid and reduce heat. Cook on low for about 10-15 minutes until the spaghetti are cooked through, while giving a gentle stir every now and then. If needed, add in a splash more of water.

Serve immediately, sprinkled generously with finely shredded hard cheese like Grana Padano or Parmigiano Reggiano.

Već i vrapci na granama znaju da obožavam jela koja se kuhaju u jednom loncu i obožavam tjesteninu. Stoga tjestenina iz jednog lonca kotira prilično visoko na ljestvici mojih životnih prioriteta. Špageti Puttanesca kao koncept postoje već preko pedeset godina, a ovo je moja verzija talijanskog klasika.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 8,66 kn po porciji / 34,63 kn za sve)

4 žlice maslinovog ulja (1,32 kn)

2 šalice cherry rajčica (10,00 kn)

4 slana inčuna (4,00 kn)

4 sušene rajčice (2,00 kn)

6 češnjeva češnjaka (1,50 kn)

½ šalice odkoštenih maslina (3,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat sušenog čilija u listićima (0,15 kn)

1 žličica sušenog origana (0,50 kn)

400 g sušenih špageta (6,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

2 šalice vode (–)

½ šalice fino ribanog tvrdog sira (6,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Maslinovo ulje i cherry rajčice ubacite u dublju tavu na srednjoj vatri. Kada počne krčkati poklopite i kuhajte 5-10 minuta da se rajčice blago karameliziraju, s time da povremeno sve promiješate. U međuvremenu nasjeckajte inčune i sušene rajčice, češnjak narežite na tanke ploške, te grubo narežite masline.

Kad se cherry rajčice karameliziraju u tavu dodajte inčune, sušene rajčice, češnjak, masline, čili i origano. Kuhajte koju minutu da sve zamiriši prije nego ubacite i špagete, sol, papar i vodu. Vodite računa o tome da su špageti potopljeni, pa pustite da sve zavrije i čvrsto poklopite. Smanjite vatru i krčkajte 10-15 minuta dok špageti ne budu gotovi, a povremeno sve dobro promiješajte. Po potrebi dodajte još mrvicu vode.

Poslužite odmah sa dobrom dozom ribanog tvrdog sira tipa parmezan ili Grana Padano.

One Pot Spaghetti Puttanesca / Špageti Puttanesca iz jednog lonca

One Pot Mushroom Pasta (vegetarian) / Tjestenina s gljivama iz jednog lonca (vegetarijanska)

The days are getting colder and autumn is here. This means that I crave comforting foods more than ever. And what can be more comforting than pasta? When cooked in a single pot, it’s also my favorite type of pasta. This dish is so fuss free and delicious that I am absolutely in love.

Cook for about 15 minutes, until pasta is cooked to al dente, while stirring occasionally. Taste and adjust seasonings, then stir in shredded cheese. Serve immediately. This dish also reheats well, so it’s a good option to take to work.

Dani su sve hladniji i jesen nam je stigla, a to znači da mi se jede fina i topla hrana za dušu. A ne znam što bi bolje upalo u tu kategoriju od tjestenine. Još kada je ta tjestenina skuhana u jednom jedinom loncu, to mi je odmah najdraži tip jela. Ovo je sve ispalo tako jednostavno i ukusno da je odmah upisano na listu mojih favorita.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcija / 9,24 kn po porciji / 36,96 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

2 mrkve (1,50 kn)

2 rebra celera (1,50 kn)

2 žlice maslaca (2,00 kn)

500 g šampinjona (15,00 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,50 kn)

1 žlica sušenog peršina (0,50 kn)

400 g fusila (6,00 kn)

2 šalice povrtnog temeljca (1,00 kn)

1 šalica mlijeka (1,50 kn)

½ šalice ribanog tvrdog sira (6,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće i gljive. Ulje, luk, mrkve i celer stavite u dublju tavu na jakoj vatri i dinstajte nekoliko minuta da malo omekšaju. Dodajte maslac i gljive, te kuhajte 5-10 minuta da se gljive lagano karameliziraju. Ubacite češnjak u prahu, sol, papar, peršin, tjesteninu, temeljac i mlijeko. Dobro sve promiješajte, vodeći računa o tome da je tjestenina uglavnom potopljena u tekućinu. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru i kuhajte čvrsto poklopljeno. Kuhajte 15-tak minuta, da tjestenina bude kuhana al dente, s time da nekoliko puta za vrijeme kuhanja sve promiješate. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, pa umiješajte još i ribani sir. Poslužite odmah. Ovo se jelo također i dobro podgrijava, pa je super opcija za pripremiti unaprijed i ponijeti na posao.

One Pot Mushroom Pasta (vegetarian) / Tjestenina s gljivama iz jednog lonca (vegetarijanska)

Summer Pasta Salad (vegetarian) / Ljetna salata sa tjesteninom (vegetarijanska)

Nothing beats easy summer meals than salads and pasta. Conveniently, this dish combines both. The recipe below yields huge amount of food and can easily feed a crowd at picnic or barbecue. The salad can hold for a few days in the fridge, but in that case I strongly advise that you store veggies separate from the pasta and the dressing just to prevent them from getting too soggy.

IMGP8489

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 8 generous servings / 0.73 EUR per serving / 5.80 EUR for all)

For the salad:

1 large purple onion (0.10 EUR)

1 large red bell pepper (0.40 EUR)

4 large cucumbers (1.33 EUR)

500 grams cherry tomatoes (2.00 EUR)

Handful of fresh parskey (0.13 EUR)

8 cups precooked pasta of choice, cooled (0.53 EUR)

For the dressing:

2 cups Greek yogurt (0.93 EUR)

2 tbsp mustard (0.27 EUR)

¼ cup apple cider vinegar (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.07 EUR)

IMGP8486

METHOD:

Wash, peel and finely dice all of the veggies. I also discarded the cucumber seeds so the final salad is crunchier, but you do you. To prepare the dressing, whisk together all of the ingredients until smooth and well incorporated. Assemble the salad by tossing together all of the veggies with pasta and dressing. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Serve chilled.

The salad should keep refrigerated for 1-2 days, but as I already said, for best results better store the veggies separate from the dressing.

Nema boljih i lakših ljetnih obroka od salata i tjestenine, a ovo jelo upravo objedinjuje to dvoje. Od ovog ćete recepta dobiti ogromnu količinu hrane sa kojom lako možete nahraniti cijelo mnoštvo na nekom pikniku ili roštilju. Salata će bez problema držati koji dan u frižideru, no svakako vam savjetujem da povrće čuvate odvojeno od tjestenine i dresinga, a sve kako vam se ono ne bi razgnjecalo.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 8 izdašnih porcija / 5,53 kn po porciji / 44,26 kn za sve)

Za salatu:

1 veliki ljubičasti luk (0,75 kn)

1 velika crvena paprika (3,00 kn)

4 velika krastavca (10,00 kn)

500 g cherry rajčica (15,00 kn)

Pregršt svježeg peršina (1,00 kn)

8 šalica kuhane i ohlađene tjestenine po izboru (4,00 kn)

Za dresing:

2 šalice grčkog jogurta (7,00 kn)

2 žlice senfa (2,00 kn)

¼ šalice jabučnog octa (1,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće. Ja sam odlučila izrezati i baciti sjemenke krastavaca da salata bude još hrskavija, ali vi napravite po svojem ukusu. Priredite dresing miješajući sve sastojke dok ne budu jednolični i glatki. Napravite salatu tako da pomiješate svo povrće, tjesteninu i dressing. Kušajte i prilagodite začine. Poslužite ohlađeno.

Salata će vam u hladnjaku držati barem 1-2 dana, ali kako sam već rekla, za najbolje rezultate odvojeno čuvajte povrće i dresing.

Summer Pasta Salad (vegetarian) / Ljetna salata sa tjesteninom (vegetarijanska)

Super Quick Hummus Pesto Pasta (vegan) / Ultra brza tjestenina sa humusom i pesom (veganska)

We all need easy dishes like this one in our arsenal. Why, you ask? You have a work week from hell ahead of you? You are moving houses? You’re gonna have renovations at home? And you’re gonna order takeout, right? WRONG!!! You’re gonna take 10 minutes on the weekend to whip up this hummus and this pesto. Or buy a jar of pesto (vegan, if that’s your thing). Or buy both. And then you’re going to cook dinner in just a few minutes, when you come home exhausted. Or even meal prep this, as it tastes good cold and reheats quite well.

imgp8128

imgp8126

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 generous servings / 0.39 EUR per serving / 1.56 EUR for all)

500 grams dried pasta of choice (1.00 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

1 cup hummus (0.33 EUR)

3 tbsp pesto (0.20 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

imgp8127

METHOD:

Cook the pasta in salty water according to package instructions. Drain, but reserve a bit of pasta water for later. Add in hummus and pesto, then stir until well combined. If needed, add in a splash of reserved pasta water. Season generously with black pepper and serve immediately.

To take this dish up a notch, you can also throw in some fresh seasonal veggies. Or cook peas, broccoli, cauliflower or whatever else together with pasta. But it totally works on its own too and is super delicious.

Svima nam u životu trebaju ovakva jednostavna jela. Zašto pitate se? Jer imate tjedan iz pakla na poslu. Ili se selite. Ili doma preuređujete nastambu. I onda ćete naručiti dostavu, je li tako? NEĆETE!!! Već ćete za vikend izdvojiti desetak minuta i pripremiti si ovaj humus i ovaj pesto. Ili kupiti teglu pesta (veganskog, ako je to vaša brija). Ili kupiti oboje. Ali ćete onda, kada doma dođete umorni, moći skuhati večeru u samo desetak minuta. Ili si pripremiti ovo jelo unaprijed, jer je ukusno i hladno, a i dobro se podgijava.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 izdašne porcije / 2,92 kn po porciji / 11,66 kn za sve)

500 g tjestenine po izboru (7,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1 šalica humusa (2,50 kn)

3 žlice pesta (1,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Skuhajte tjesteninu u slanoj vodi prema uputama na pakiranju. Ocijedite, ali malo vode od kuhanja sačuvajte za kasnije. U tjesteninu umiješajte humus i pesto. Prema potrebi razrijedite sve sa vodom od kuhanja tjestenine. Dobro sve začinite paprom i odmah poslužite.

Ovo jednostavno jelo lako možete još podignuti tako da ubacite još i nešto svježeg sezonskog povrća. Ili skupa sa tjesteninom skuhajte i grašak, brokulu, cvjetaču ili štogod drugo vam se već svidi. Ali jelo funkcionira super i ovakvo kakvo je, te je veoma ukusno.

Mushroom and Kale Spätzle (vegetarian) / Spätzle sa gljivama i keljom (vegetarijanske)

Oh, hey, look, it’s a one-pot pasta dish! I haven’t made any of those in a while, which needs to be promptly corrected. I used fresh store-bought Spätzle in the recipe, but you’re more than welcome to substitute them with any other type of fresh or dried pasta. Just keep in mind that dried pasta will require more liquid and a longer cooking time to thoroughly cook, so adjust accordingly.

IMGP7710

IMGP7706

IMGP7707

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 1.25 EUR per serving / 5.01 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

2 large onions (0.20 EUR)

3 garlic cloves (0.10 EUR)

2 tbsp butter (0.27 EUR)

500 grams of Portobello mushrooms (2.00 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.07 EUR)

½ small head of kale (0.20 EUR)

500 grams of Spätzle (1.33 EUR)

2 cups vegetable broth (0.13 EUR)

½ cup finely grated hard cheese (0.67 EUR)

IMGP7712

IMGP7708

METHOD:

Wash, peel and finely dice all of the veggies. Clean and thinly slice the mushrooms. Place a deep skillet on high heat and sauté the onion until translucent. Add in garlic, stir and cook for a minute or two before adding in butter, mushrooms, salt and pepper. Give a good stir and cook for a few minutes until the mushrooms decrease in volume. Stir in kale and cover the skillet with a lid so the kale can wilt down.

After about 2-3 minutes, add Spätzle and vegetable broth to the skillet. Give a good stir, reduce heat to low, cover and cook for a few minutes, until the liquid is mostly absorbed and the pasta is done. Just be sure to give a good stir every now and then so that the paste doesn’t stick to the pot. Once the pasta is done, remove from heat and stir in grated cheese (I used Grana Padano). Taste and adjust seasoning and serve immediately.

Evo vam jedan super recept za tjesteninu gdje ćete zaprljati samo jedan lonac. Već dugo nisam objavila ništa tog tipa, pa to treba pod hitno ispraviti. Ja sam upotrijebila svježe kupovne spätzle (iz Lidla), ali vi slobodno uzmite bilo kakvu drugu svježu ili sušenu tjesteninu. Samo imajte na umu da će vam za sušenu tjesteninu trebati više tekućine, a i samo vrijeme kuhanja će biti duže, pa stoga tako i prilagodite recept.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 9,37 kn po porciji / 37,46 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

2 velika luka (1,50 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

2 žlice maslaca (2,00 kn)

500 g šampinjona (15,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,50 kn)

½ male glavice kelja (1,50 kn)

500 g spätzli (10,00 kn)

2 šalice povrtnog temeljca (1,00 kn)

½ šalice fino ribanog tvrdog sira (5,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće. Očistite i tanko narežite gljive. Duboku tavu stavite na jaku vatru, pa na ulju prodinstajte luk dok ne bude staklast. Dodajte češnjak, promiješajte i kuhajte minutu, samo da češnjak zamiriši, prije nego ubacite maslac, gljive, sol i papar. Dobro sve promiješajte te kuhajte nekoliko minuta da se volumen gljiva smanji. Umiješajte kelj i poklopite tavu kako bi kelj povenuo.

Nakon 2-3 minute dodajte spätzle i temeljac. Sve dobro promiješajte, smanjite vatru na laganu te kuhajte par minuta dok se tjestenina skroz ne skuha i ne popije većinu tekućine. Pazite da u međuvremenu tu i tamo sve promiješate kako se tjestenina ne bi zapekla za dno tave. Maknite s vatre kada su spätzle gotove i umiješajte sir (ja sam upotrijebila Grana Padano). Kušajte i prilagodite začine pa odmah poslužite.

Chicken and Chickpea Bolognese Sauce / Bolonjez od piletine i slanutka

Bolognese sauce is one of those pasta classics where everyone has their own version on how to make it. Since this means that you basically can’t go wrong with it, I decided to make mine with some chickpeas for additional protein and yumminess.

IMGP7501

METHOD:

Finely dice the onion and carrots and mince garlic. Place a deep skillet on high heat and sauté onion on olive oil for a few minutes, until slightly translucent. Add in the chicken mince, generously season with salt and pepper, then cook for about 10 minutes, until the meat is done. As the meat cooks, break it down with your spatula into smaller chunks.

When the meat is done, add in carrots, garlic, oregano, basil, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, smoked and Hungarian paprika and bay leaf. Give a good stir and cook for a minute until the spices become fragrant. Then add in diced tomatoes, tomato paste, chickpeas and water. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook with a lid cracked open for 30 minutes. Give it an occasional stir and add a splash of water if needed. Towards the end of cooking, stir in fresh parsley.

While the sauce is simmering, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add in salt, oil and pasta, then cook it to al dente according to the package instructions. Drain the pasta and transfer to a skillet with sauce to finish off cooking for the last two minutes. If needed, add a splash of pasta water to the sauce to thin it out. Serve immediately, or portion out for future lunches.

Bolonjez je jedan od onih klasičnih umaka za tjesteninu, tako da svatko ima neku svoju verziju. Pošto po meni to znači da u principu ne možete pogriješiti, ja sam svoj umak odlučila podebljati sa slanutkom za dodatne proteine i fini okus.

SASTOJCI:

½ žličice sušenog čilija u listićima (0,25 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica slatke crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,10 kn)

1 konzerva sjeckanih pelata (5,00 kn)

2 žlice koncentrata od rajčice (2,00 kn)

Voda (–)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

500 g sušene tjestenine (5,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Fino nasjeckajte luk, mrkve i češnjak. Duboku tavu stavite na jaku vatru, pa na ulju par minuta dinstajte luk da postane staklast. Ubacite mljevenu piletinu, dobro začinite solju i paprom, pa kuhajte desetak minuta dok meso ne bude gotovo. Kako se meso kuha, špatulom ga razbijte na manje komadiće.

Kada je meso gotovo dodajte u tavu mrkve, sjeckani češnjak, origano, bosiljak, sušeni češnjak, čili, dimljenu i slatku papriku i lovorov list. Dobro promiješajte i kuhajte samo minutu da začini zamiriše prije nego ubacite pelate, koncentrat rajčice, slanutak i vodu. Promiješajte da se sve sjedini i pustite da zavrije. Tada smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem oko 30 minuta. Prema potrebi promiješajte i ako zatreba podlijte s malo vode. Prema kraju kuhanja umiješajte svježi peršin.

Dok se umak krčka stavite veliki lonac vode da zavrije. Dodajte sol, ulje i tjesteninu, koju skuhajte al dente prema uputama na pakiranju. Ocijedite tjesteninu i ubacite ju u tavu sa umakom da se zadnje dvije minute skuha do kraja. Prema potrebi umak razrijedite sa malo vode u kojoj se kuhala tjestenina. Poslužite odmah ili si rasporedite u porcije za kasnije obroke.

Tuna and Tomato Fusilli / Fusili sa tunom i rajčicom

Let me tell you, my existence would be meagre and incredibly sad if there weren’t any pasta in the world. Pasta is not only quick and cheap to make, it’s also the ultimate comfort food. I could sing endless praises to pasta, but we might as well just get on with the recipe.

IMGP7184

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 1.09 EUR per serving / 4.35 EUR for all)

For the pasta:

8 cups water (–)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

500 grams fusilli (1.33 EUR)

For the sauce:

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

1 tsp garlic powder (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp dried basil (0.07 EUR)

2 tsp dried oregano (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp freshly cracked black pepper (0.07 EUR)

2 cups tomato puree (0.27 EUR)

2 tbsp dried parsley (0.27 EUR)

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (0.03 EUR)

1 can of tuna in brine (1.60 EUR)

Additional:

½ cup shredded cheese (0.33 EUR)

IMGP7183

IMGP7187

METHOD:

Add water, oil and salt to a pot, place on high heat and bring to a rolling boil. Dump in pasta and cook according to the package instructions to al dente. Drain, rinse well under cold running water and set aside.

While the pasta’s cooking finely dice the onion. When pasta is done and draining, prepare the sauce in the same pot. Add two tablespoons of sunflower seed oil and saute onion on high heat until translucent. Throw in garlic powder, basil, oregano, salt and pepper, stir and cook for a minute so the aromas release from the spices. Dump in tomato puree and parsley and cook for about ten minutes, so the sauce thickens a bit. Stir in apple cider vinegar, drained tuna and cooked pasta. Stir and cook for a minute or two, just until everything is heated through. Serve immediately with a bit of shredded cheese.

Odmah da razjasnimo – moja egzistencija bi bila poprilično bijedna da u životu nemam tjestenine. Tjestenina ne samo da je brza i jeftina za skuhati, već je i ultimativna hrana za utjehu. No umjesto da sada pišem hvalospjeve o tjestenini, evo vam i recept.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 8,09 kn po porciji / 32,37 kn za sve)

Za tjesteninu:

8 šalica vode (–)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

500 g fusila (10,00 kn)

Za umak:

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

1 žličica sušenog češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog bosiljka (0,50 kn)

2 žličice sušenog origana (1,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,50 kn)

2 šalice pasirane rajčice (2,00 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (2,00 kn)

2 žlice jabučnog octa (0,20 kn)

1 konzerva tune u salamuri (12,00 kn)

Dodatno:

½ šalice ribanog sira (2,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Vodu, ulje i sol stavite u veliki lonac na jaku vatru i pustite da zavrije. Ubacite tjesteninu i skuhajte prema uputama na pakiranju da bude al dente. Ocijedite, isperite dobro pod mlazom hladne vode i stavite na stranu.

Dok se tjestenina kuha fino nasjeckajte luk. Kada je tjestenina gotova i pustili ste ju da se cijedi, u istom loncu u kojem ste skuhali tjesteninu napravite umak. Stavite u lonac dvije žlice suncokretovog ulja i prodinstajte luk dok ne bude staklast. Ubacite češnjak, bosiljak, origano, sol i papar, promiješajte, te kuhajte koju minutu da začini otpuste arome. Dodajte pasiranu rajčicu i peršin, te kuhajte desetak minuta da se umak malo zgusne. Umiješajte jabučni ocat, ocijeđenu tunu i kuhanu tjesteninu. Dobro sve promiješajte i kuhajte samo minutu-dvije, da se sve dobro ugrije. Poslužite odmah, posipano sa malo ribanog sira.
