The biggest challenge of living on my own has been cooking for one. Ah, the single life! This year has been a journey of trial and error in the kitchen, with developing staple recipes for just one person without having an abundance of leftovers (somehow leftovers are so much better when you’re not the only one eating them). I can’t tell you how many times I came home and defaulted to scrambled eggs for dinner! After doing some research, and not finding much by way of “cooking for one” recipes online, I developed a few staples that make the perfect single serving dinner! First up, Tomato Basil Pasta! I love to use brown rice pasta as an alternative to wheat pasta. This recipe is super simple, quick and tasty! If you want to make this dish for multiple people, simply multiply the ingredients by the number of people you plan to serve and follow the directions as listed!
