Wondering whether or not to add a wok to your kitchen? In this month’s video and blog post, Tim Hagedorn shows us why a wok is the ultimate one-pan meal maker.
This recipe is so full of veggies you can skip the side salad—if you want to. And, making the pasta and sauce in a single pan cuts down on the after-dinner cleanup, as well as the amount of butter or oil you have to add.
Tim's Top Tips
- Salt your onions as you begin to saute them. It will bring out the moisture and help them cook more quickly.
- Wrap long pasta in a towel before breaking it into shorter pieces and you won’t make a mess.
- The large surface area and high, sloped sides of a wok make it a great tool for all types of one-pot meals because it can sear your protein, saute your vegetables, and cook your pasta.
