ONE POT SPAGHETTI

June 20, 2013

If only people who love cooking could also be gifted with a deep love for doing dishes. Because the correlation between amount of recipe experimentation I do and amount of dirty dishes filling the kitchen is strong.

One Pot Spaghetti is just what I’m talking about for nights I need to not so much as dirty an extra strainer. Plus, there’s a unexpected ingredient that takes it to the next level.

(On a side note, I’ve been trying to find things I really like about doing the dishes that convinces me I like it – the warm water, the feeling of the bubbles as I scrub, the sense of accomplishment when it’s complete. Maybe this is all too Pollyanna, but I’ve found it’s not as dreaded as it once was. Just a thought.)

    The One Pot Spaghetti is absolutely DELICIOUS!!! I discovered your recipe through Plan to Eat.com for the One Pot October Challenge. I had to make a few adjustments. I was unable to find fresh basil and the grocery store, I ran out of minced garlic, and grape tomatoes weren’t affordable. I used spaghetti sauce and grated Parmesan cheese. Despite the changes, it was amazing. I’m looking forward to having left overs for the next few days. Thanks Rachel, for this incredible and simple recipe!!! :-)

      *At the grocery store. My apologies!!!

    I made this last night and it was great, but we didn’t like the aldente noodles. I tried cooking longer and adding some broth but it didn’t help. Any suggestions?I can see this becoming a staple recipe at my house.

  • Cordelia

    I coocked it for dinner today. I had some mozzarella in the fridge and put it in at the last minute. Heavenly chunks of melted cheese to top the creamy pasta… OMG. Great recipe, it’s going to happen pretty often at home

  • Mikael

    Hey!

    This sounds so easy and delicious! I was wondering if you think mushrooms would be a good substitute for meat. What kind of mushrooms would you recommend?

    Rachel Schultz; you have a cute recipe card at the end of your recipes, but when i hit the “Print” cue there, it will NOT print. That means I have to go to the top of MY screen, hit print, then scroll through your entire recipe post to find the actual recipe, which, INEVITABLY is split between two pages; sometimes the only thing on one page is the title. SO, that option doesn’t work. Next attempt: Hit my print button, brings up your entire recipe, including step by step pictures and directions, then choose “Preview”, X out of the preview, which leaves the underlying screen with the original full length recipe and your cute little recipe card that wont print, then I have to Hit “File”, “Print” and then “Take screen shot”, followed by “Entire Selection”, then I have to go to the cute little recipe card and hit my “Control” button and hold to highlight the recipe card. ONce that is highlighted, I return to “File” and scroll to “Print” and then “Print Selection” Then whatever I have been able to highlight will print. Now, if that recipe is bigger than my screen is long, I have to then “X” out of that screen and hit “Don’t save”, scroll to the second part of the cute little recipe card that didn’t show on my screen the first time, and repeat the whole process over again. SO, NO YOUR PRINT OPTION DOES NOT WORK. AND IT IS TOO TIME CONSUMING TO DO THIS FOR EVERY RECIPE I SEE THAT I WOULD LIKE A COPY OF. I ALSO DO NOT HAVE AN IPAD OR PINTEREST, AND I HAVE DIFFICULTY WITH READING A COMPUTER AND FOLLOWING A RECIPE,AS OTHERS HAVE STATED HERE, so if you don’t want to fix that, it’s okay, i will find another site to visit. Thank you for reading this.

      Wow Joy!
      You need to go have a big glass of wine and calm down
      In the amount of time it took to write your tirade on your computer problems you could have written out the recipe the low tech way
      With pencil and paper

    • Holly Dean

      You just highlight the recipe with your mouse,click ‘copy’, go to your email,open a new email, click ‘paste’. It’s the easiest thing on the face of the earth.

  • John

    Don’t forget to stir noodles every so often, or they will clump. Other than that,good recipe.

  • Taire

    This looks tasty. On a side note our ipad sits on the windowsill above the sink so wash up time actually equals TV time. it seems to amp up the enthusiasm levels

  • Sandra Nessly

    I think these recipes are great. I would be more inclined to make some or all of them if I were able to print them or at least email them. This is an ongoing problem with online recipes for me. I do not do twitter and I do not do pinterest. Putting these on facebook does not solve the problem of the inability to print or email them. I do ot have a computer in my kitchen and I do not have an ipad.

    Do you drain the fat off the meat before adding the other ingredients?

  • Best dish ever. I had this last night. Delicious and easy.

  • Cher

    Made this today, using Morning Star Farms Giller Recipe Crumbles, as hub is a Vegan. Turned out very well!

  • Kierra

    I’m thinking of making this. Is it saucy?

    • I just made this an hour ago! I love that the sauce binds to the noodles but if you want it to be a little but more saucy, I would suggest to add some extra tomato sauce.

  • […] Recipe: One Pot Spaghetti […]

  • I made this tonight and changed around the ingredients quite a bit to make it a tad healthier and to bump up the flavor (since I was using ground turkey which can be a little more bland than beef). I was so easy and delicious! I’ll definitely be making this again and again.

    Here’s the changes I made in the ingredients, if anyone is curious:

    1 lb. ground turkey breast
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1/3 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/3 teaspoon dried basil
    1/3 teaspoon italian seasoning
    1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds
    1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
    29 oz. can tomato sauce
    14 oz. can beef broth
    12 oz. whole wheat spaghetti
    salt & pepper to taste

    By the way, I love your blog!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Thanks! And thanks for the ingredient ideas too!
