Instead of boiling pasta in water, blogger Ashley Rodriguez cooks it in a super-flavorful combination of stock, cream, leeks, scallion, garlic and chives.
Slideshow: One-Pot Meals
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
5 garlic cloves, minced
3 scallions, thinly sliced
2 leeks, white and light green parts only, trimmed and thinly sliced
1 medium shallot, chopped
1 anchovy fillet, drained
Pinch of crushed red pepper
1 pound spaghetti, noodles broken in half
3 3/4 cups chicken stock
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
2 tablespoons chopped chives
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, plus more for serving
How to Make It
In a pot, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic, scallions, leeks and shallot and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the leeks are softened, 6 minutes. Add the anchovy, crushed red pepper, spaghetti, stock, cream and the 1/2 teaspoon of salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring, until the pasta is tender and a sauce forms, 11 minutes. Stir in the chives and 1/4 cup of cheese; season with salt. Serve the pasta with extra cheese on the side.

Review Body: Cooking the pasta in the sauce really makes sense, and helps to lighted up a cheesy pasta. But does 4 1/2 cups of liquid really reduce to a creamy sauce in the time it takes to cook pasta? Using at most two cups in the skillet, adding cheese and bread crumbs at the end.
