Over the last few years, I have become OBSESSED with one pot/skillet meals. I haven’t posted that many, but I seriously love them. One of my all time most popular recipes, One Pot Wonder Tomato Basil Pasta, is a one pot recipe and one of the most delicious recipes EVER – try it if you haven’t already! However, once I tried the One Skillet Parmesan Pasta from Yellow Bliss Road, I had a new favorite. I mean, it’s cheesy, easy, and super super delicious. I was hooked, making it ALL the time. Then, I thought to myself that it would be really really awesome spiced up – we love spicy food at my house. I decided to add some jalapenos, red pepper flakes, and spicy cheese and called it a day. This One Skillet Spicy Jalapeno Parmesan Pasta is seriously my best pasta dish to date.
For this recipe, you need a BIG skillet. You really can’t go wrong with whatever BIG pot you use, but things can go very wrong if your skillet is too small. I really highly recommend the one I purchased recently (obsessed!)! The last thing you need is to see all this delicious sauce bubbling over onto your stove top – no bueno.
Ahhh, it’s seriously so delicious. Just make it tonight, please! You will love it! If you don’t like a lot of spice, just reduce the red pepper flakes and jalapenos. I wouldn’t even say this was super spicy though, you could even add more to spice things up to your liking!
I also recommend using a thicker noodle for this dish – stick to linguine or fettuccine. They absorb the water perfectly and cook up to al dente without getting mushy.I recently found this Pastificio Di Martino Fresine Pasta at Kroger, and OMG it is SO good. It was on sale for $1, so I figured I would try it out and I’m glad I did. Keep an eye out for it – so delicious.
