It’s not too often you see a cookbook with a five-star review, but One-Pot Pasta ($11, hardcover) by Sabrina Fauda-Role has earned it, and it’s recipes like the following that prove why. Here’s the drill: this cheesy pasta dish comes together in one pot in 15 minutes. Though the technique sounds simple enough (throw everything in a pot and simmer away), it’s flawless because weighted measurements are required. That means you’ll need to bust out your kitchen scale or invest in one (there are affordable digital scales on Amazon, at Target, etc.).

The other caveat? The recipe calls for an unusual pasta shape and a handful of French cheeses that you likely won’t be able to find at a standard grocery store. That said, you probably will be able to source from a local specialty cheese shop, Whole Foods, or online. The pasta, galletti, is named such since it resembles the comb of a rooster. The cheeses include three different French varieties: a mild buttery blue cheese, a gooey aged goat’s cheese, and a nutty cow’s milk cheese that melts effortlessly. Well, four if you include the Italian cream cheese mascarpone that ties them all together.

Pasta addicts, Francophiles, foodies on a time limit, and anyone else drooling at these photos, do yourself, your loved ones, and your roomies a favor by making this recipe. It’ll be worth the 15 minutes of “effort.”
