Author Notes

This recipe falls in line with all other dinners I make. One meal for the whole family. Everyone in my family, especially my kids, have various food preferences. Instead of being a short order cook I aim to make one meal, with adjustments, for everyone. A one pot meal is a great option. I wanted to stay true to Martha Stewart's One-Pan Pasta‘s basic recipe with minimal ingredients but tweak the flavor combination from Italy to Asia. From changing the pasta to soba and basil to cilantro it transforms into a new dish! I also added a few traditional Indian spices. Ultimately you’re left with the basic concept from the original recipe but a whole new flavor palate. It’s a relatively quick and easy recipe to make! The family enjoyed! Hope you enjoy it too. —One Mom One Meal
