The BEST and EASIEST One Pot Pasta Recipe

One of my best-received recipes was for a one-pot garlic Parmesan pasta. Since the weather is turning and I am starting to cook more..I have been looking for some easy family weeknight recipes. I came across this cheesy, Tomato pasta, and decided to give it a try. The recipe itself is rather simple but it is really tasty. I added some cheese and parley sausage that I ordered from Vincent’s Meat Market on Arthur Ave and the dish was perfection!!! I think it is going to be a weekly go-to for the next year!! Bon Appetit!

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 14 oz. fresh tomatoes, diced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Italian basil
  • 8 oz. spaghetti
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2-1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Italian parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon butter

Heat oil in a wide skillet, pan or pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, saute 3 minutes or until they start to brown. Add tomatoes, chicken broth, Italian basil and spaghetti.

Press the spaghetti with a spatula to submerge the pasta in the liquid. If your skillet, pan or pot is not wide enough, break the spaghetti into halves before cooking. Cover with the lid and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 8 minutes or until the pasta is al dente. If the pasta is not cooked after 8 minutes, add a little bit more chicken broth, cover the lid and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.

Uncover the lid and add salt and the butter. Turn off the heat and top the pasta with Parmesan cheese and parsley. Serve immediately.
