Project Pinterest: One Pot Pasta

I’m running low on blogging fumes this week, so I dug into my draft folder to see why I could pull out.  I made this recipe while we were still in San Francisco but I never got around to posting about it… so here it is!

I see a ton of “one pot pasta” recipes on Pinterest, and I’ve probably pinned them all.  So I decided to try one!  I picked this pin since it’s a recipe from A Beautiful Mess, and I already know that I like their blog so I had high hopes!

I adapted it some, and it turned out pretty well!

One Pot Pasta

The Amateur Librarian // One Pot Pasta

Time: 15 minutes cook time

Cost: $5-10 but you probably have most of these ingredients on hand


serves 3-4.

8 oz. (one package) dry linguine
14 oz. (one can) diced tomatoes with juices
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon basil (fresh if you have it)
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup vegetable stock
2 cups water
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
salt + pepper


In a large pot, combine the first ten ingredients listed above (everything but the cheese and salt + pepper).

Bring the liquid to a roaring boil.  Reduce the heat to a low boil and cook until the pasta is al dente – about six minutes.  Remove from heat and let the pasta sit in the remaining juices for a couple of minutes.  Toss the pasta a bit to give it a good coating.  Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.  Add the shredded parmesan sprinkled on top when you’re ready to plate.  Tada!

Pretty tasty, and super easy to clean!

And since I’m still obsessed with the Waterlogue app… how about a pasta painting?  Ooh la la…
