Easy One Pot Pasta

If I’d known making pasta could be this easy – without all the draining/straining mess – I’d have been making pasta this way for years. I don’t know if I’ll make it the “old way” again…this is easy, quick, and delish! And it makes a TON of food.

Ingredients:

  • 1 12-16 oz. bag pasta
  • 1 28 oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 medium white onion, sliced
  • 6 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup chopped, firmly packed fresh basil
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • nutritional yeast (optional)

Preparation:

  1. Place all ingredients except nutritional yeast in a large pot.
  2. Cover and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until pasta is slightly al dente (check the directions on the bag of pasta), stirring every few minutes.
  4. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 10 minutes.
  5. Stir just before serving.
  6. Sprinkle with nutritional yeast, if desired.
  7. Enjoy!
