Hi, Kristy in the Rada Kitchen and today I’m making a one pot pasta recipe. I’m excited to introduce you to this new cookbook, it’s called One Pot Pastas. It has 30 recipes with full-color pictures. They’re different pasta recipes to make that you mix in one pot. You don’t have to boil the noodles ahead, you can make them on the stovetop, some you bake, but there’s quite a variety.

Today I’m going to do the Baked Pizza Pasta. So to begin you’ll want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees. And you’ll want to coat a 9 x 13 dish with cooking spray. I am actually using the Rada Stoneware Rectangular Baker that needs no pre-seasoning so that is ready to go. Then you’ll need an 8 ounce package of uncooked rotini or bowtie pasta, or whatever is in your kitchen cupboard. You can even use macaroni if you wanted. You’re going to put that in a pan, then you’re going to add a 24 ounce jar of spaghetti sauce, 2 cups of water, and a teaspoon and a half or Italian or pizza seasoning. Now we’re going to give that a stir. And that’s what I like about these One Pot pasta recipes, you do not have to cook this macaroni, so you don’t have an extra pan to wash, you’re just going to cook it right in here. You’re just going to make sure all that water and spaghetti sauce gets well blended. And then smooth it out, it’s going to look like that.

Now we’re going to cover that with 3 and a half ounces of pepperoni. Just kind of float them on the top. So now we have our pepperoni layer. Now we’re going to add chopped green pepper. I’m using this Rada Utility Steak knife. A lot of people use it like a paring knife, you can easily cut out that membrane and seeds. And I’m using the Rada Cutting Board. And if you have a youth group or church group that is interested in raising money to attend a conference or summer camp, or you just need to raise funds, Rada provides an excellent opportunity for that, you make 40%, no matter how big the order it. So now that I’ve chopped these I like to just slice them.

We had a customer gave us a tidbit, she said she promotes the cutting board as a great work surface for kids’ art projects. Arts and crafts, and she likes to promote the cookbooks during the summer during the campfire and grilling. Then during the holidays, it’s the perfect time to show off the cheese knife and pie server. Those holiday pies and cheese and cracker trays. And then in the fall the canning and harvest time of the garden produces makes for a great time to sell the Granny Paring Knife and the Cook’s Utility Knife, and actually this Utility Steak Knife is one of our best sellers. It has a nice length on the blade, is shaped like a paring knife but it has more length. So now we’re going to sprinkle our chopped green pepper over the pepperoni. And now we’re going to add a 2 and a quarter ounce can of sliced black olives that have been drained. And then we’re going to top this with 2 cups of mozzarella cheese.

Now we’re going to bake this for 45 minutes or until it’s hot and bubbly. And the baked pizza pasta is done, and how easy is that? It’s ready to serve. And that’s one of the recipes in our One Pot Pastas cookbook. End of Video Transcript
