Single Sheet Pan Parmesan Crusted Salmon with Roasted Broccoli

One thing I’ve been intrigued with lately is the idea of cooking a meal on a sheet pan. I haven’t even tried one pot pasta recipes yet, probably because I fear soggy noodles or something. I don’t really understand how you can add traditional pasta noodles to cold water and then bring it to a boil and cook it with everything else and end with noodles that have a great texture ....more
