27 Recipes – One Pot Pasta


I was inspired to try a one pot pasta dish after seeing this recipe on A Beautiful Mess. I made a few changes to suit what I had on hand though. This is one recipe I will definitely be trying again since I can think of so many variations I want to try!



500g linguine
400g can crushed tomatoes
5-6 mushrooms sliced
1/2 red capsicum sliced
1 red onion
3 cloves garlic, mince
2 big sprigs of basil (plus a few more leaves for garnish)
1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon chopped chives
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups chicken stock
2 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
salt + pepper

  1. In a large pot, mix the linguine, tomatoes, mushrooms, capsicum, onion, garlic, herbs, olive oil, chicken stock and water27-Recipes-One-Pot-Pasta-1
  2. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to a low boil and stir regularly
  3. Cook until the pasta is al dente, which is around 9 minutes. Check if it’s ready by tasting a bit of pasta. It should be almost cooked through27-Recipes-One-Pot-Pasta-2
  4. Remove from the heat and leave to sit in the remaining juices for a few minutes, stirring to coat the pasta
  5. If desired, season with salt and pepper and serve with crumbled feta on top


My Thoughts

I thought this was amazing, especially with the mushrooms and feta! The chilli was a little more overpowering than I would have liked, so next time I would use slightly less, but there was so much flavour! I might try this with other types of pasta as well. This made about 6 portions

Michael’s Thoughts

Michael thought this was very good, but the chilli was a little overpowering as well, but he can’t wait to try it again
