Tefal Ingenio – One pot pasta

I recently invested in the Tefal 13 piece Ingenio set from Argos and I am in LOVEEEEE. Non stick pots/pans that are so versatile and can be used on the hob, in the over AND in the fridge. What more could you need?!


The recipe I am about to share with you is adapted from Blessy , who so kindly shared it on her Instagram. I’ve made it twice and it’s been so popular I thought I’d change up the blog a bit and add the odd recipe.
