No need to dirty two pots to make this vegetable-rich dish. Here, we cook the pasta right in the skillet with the sauce for quick cleanup.
This rich, beautifully balanced recipe keeps it as simple as can be, using only one pot and an immersion blender to make it all come together on the stove top.
When you cook hulled barley – also called whole-grain barley – in a pressure cooker, you don’t have to soak it beforehand, which cuts down on prep time. It also makes the barley tender and creamy without all the stirring you usually have to do to make risotto on the stove top.
