The one pot and ingredients ready for the 20 Minute One Pot Pasta.

New kitchen gadget alert

For this recipe I used my brand new Stellar draining casserole dish. It is my new must use kitchen gadget and it is the most versatile pan. I use it for everything from poached eggs and pasta sauces to and boiling vegetables to one pot roast chicken.

The expert design has drainage holes in the side of the lid which makes very easy to pour out without having to get out a colander which also helps reduce washing up and that can only ever be a good thing.It also makes cooking pasta or potatoes extra easy as there is enough space for steam to be let out so it doesn’t boil over.

The lined handles are a great quirk which makes serving and moving the pan so much easier as they stay cool, reducing the need oven gloves to pick it up. Check out the full range of Stellar cookware.

I’ve used the pan for cooking slow roast pork as it is oven safe up to 180ºC. A shoulder of pork in the pan with some cider and stock and cook at 140 for 5 hours. Delicious.

How beautiful does this pot look!
