Hello from Bucharest!! If you haven't heard our family's big news you can read about it HERE and HERE, but we have made the big move overseas and are in the process of setting up our life here in Romania. In addition to thebusybaker.ca I (together with my husband) write a blog about our travels and our life overseas, so feel free to follow along over there too if you're interested in getting to know me and my family a little better and seeing what goes on behind the scenes. Needless to say, the last few weeks have been quite crazy so my posting schedule has been a little all over the place. Thanks for your understanding with this, and rest assured I have SO many awesome recipes coming your way in the next few months!
And to start us off, I'm bringing you this absolutely delicious Cheesy One-Pot Hawaiian Pizza Pasta. Guys, this dish is SO easy to make it's almost embarrassing and if you're as big a fan of Hawaiian Pizza as I am, you're going to be all over this. And besides the delicious-factor, it's a super fast meal that's perfect for busy weeknights and even those crazy back-to-school days.
We just love one-pot meals in our house, especially ones that we can customize to our own tastes, so if you're not a big pineapple fan feel free to add in any of your favourite pizza toppings instead and make it your own. Or, try my One-Pot Pepperoni Mushroom Pizza Pasta instead if that's more your speed!
I love to use fresh, ripe pineapple when I make this One-Pot Hawaiian Pizza Pasta, but feel free to use canned if that's what you have on hand. This recipe is SO great because it mainly calls for ingredients you'd typically find in your pantry, and I always keep a jar or two of pizza sauce on hand for this one-pot recipe. Feel free to enjoy it all on its own, or serve it with an easy side salad, like my Greek Yogurt Caesar Salad!
Cheesy One-Pot Hawaiian Pizza Pasta (serves 6-8)
450g dry Penne pasta
3 cups vegetable stock
1 cup water
1 398ml jar of your favourite pizza sauce
1-2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cups cubed ham or Canadian bacon
1 large green bell pepper, cut into strips
1 - 1 1/2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
cilantro for garnish (optional)
Add the pasta, the vegetable stock and the water to a large pot or pan over medium high heat. When the mixture comes to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and cook the pasta until almost all the liquid has been absorbed, stirring regularly to prevent the pasta from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Turn the heat to low. Add the pasta sauce, the ham, and the mozzarella cheese, reserving 1/2 cup of the cheese for the end.
Stir everything together well until the cheese begins to melt and a sauce forms.
Stir in the bell pepper strips and pineapple chunks and continue to cook on low just until the peppers and pineapple chunks begin to soften.
Add the rest of the mozzarella on top and sprinkle with some cilantro for a garnish, if you wish.
Serve immediately, and enjoy!
