Easy One-Pot Linguine with Cannellini Beans & Broccoli

Linguine with Cannellini Beans and Broccoli

Summer is coming, and that means we have some long, hot days ahead of us.  When summer strikes, I try to come up with hot, delicious, healthy meals for my family that don’t heat up the whole kitchen.  (Who wants to sweat while you’re cooking?  Ick.) One-pot meals are great for this purpose because they’re no-fuss, and you’re out of the kitchen in no time.

Good Cook challenged me to come up with a one-pot meal using some fun kitchen gadgets they sent me, including the Safe-Cut Can Opener, Utensil Pot ClipFlip Measuring SpoonEgg Separator, and SMART Ice Cream Scoop.

Good Cook Kitchen Tools

A kitchen drawer wouldn’t be complete without these handy tools, and I used three of them when preparing my One-Pot Linguine with Cannellini Beans & Broccoli recipe.

Good Cook Safe-Cut Can Opener

The space-saving Save-Cut Can Opener is also a bottle opener, cap twister, and tab puller.  The accident-prone (meaning me) will appreciate that this opens cans without leaving any sharp edges exposed.

Good Cook Flip Measuring Spoon

The Flip Measuring Spoon is another tool that helps reduce clutter in your kitchen drawer.  It features double-sided pockets that invert to different measuring capacities (1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, and 1 tbsp) so you get 4 measuring spoons in one.  Genius.

Good Cook Pot Clip Holder

Good Cook’s Utensil Pot Clip fits right onto the side of your pot, giving you a convenient place to leave your spoon or spatula when you’re not using it.  No more messes to clean up on the stove or counter!

Speaking of no messes, I will say again that it’s what I love most about one-pot recipes.  The One-Pot Linguine with Cannellini Beans & Broccoli recipe that I have for you today is so unbelievably easy.  Everything gets cooked together, making it a great option for those busy weeknights.
