Are you tired of pasta steam burning your
face? Too many dishes to wash after dinner? And your dinner STILL turns out soggy and
lame? OH NO! Try One-Pot Pastas! Hey munchies! Welcome to the channel if you’re new, I’m
Alyssia and I am SO excited to share three ONE-POT PASTAS with you today! Everyone wants
to save time on weeknight meals AND keep it healthy, so today we’re doing just that,
and I’m sharing a vegan and vegetarian dish, and a dish with some optional meat, so there’s
something for everyone. I also have a BONUS One-Pot Pasta on my Facebook page today – more
on that at the end. Let’s start with my One-Pot Veggie Spaghetti! Here are the ingredients
you will need. In a large pot over high heat, sauté your onions in a little olive oil.
Once translucent, add in your zucchini, mushrooms, frozen peas, spaghetti noodles, thyme, salt,
and water. Mix to combine and bring to a boil. The beauty of one-pot dishes is you literally
put it all in one pot and let it go – no draining is necessary, no extra dishes, one
and done! Cook uncovered for about 8-10 minutes until your pasta is cooked through and most
of the water has reduced.
Now it’s time to stir in your parmesan and spinach, and mix well until your spinach has wilted.
Now there’s nothing left to do but serve and devour! Yum! Remember that for these pasta
dishes you can use ANY pasta type you prefer, so it could be whole-wheat, gluten-free, quinoa,
corn whatever you like, and any shape will work, too. Next, we’re going to make my
One-Pot Taco Quinoa! Here are the ingredients you will need. Add olive oil to a pot over
medium-high heat and add in your onions, garlic, and bell peppers.
Sauté until your onions
begin to turn translucent. Then we’re going to add salsa, corn, black beans, uncooked quinoa, cumin,
chili powder, salt and pep, and vegetable broth. Mix to combine and bring to a boil.
Cover and reduce to a simmer until your quinoa is cooked through. This should take about
20 minutes. Once the water is completely absorbed it’s ready to go! Serve and enjoy! I like
to top mine with a little avocado, cilantro, and some lime juice! If you don't
need this to be vegan you could also add some shredded cheese on top or in the dish. So
easy! If you want more convenient and easy meals ideas, be sure to hit that subscribe button! Go ahead, hit it! I know you want to! Lastly, we’re going to make my personal favorite: PIZZA pasta! Thumbs up for pizza! Here are the ingredients you will need. Once again, start by sautéing your onions and garlic in a
little olive oil like so. Then, we’re going to add our tomato sauce, I chose diatlini
pasta but you could use any shape, canned tomatoes, parsley, garlic powder, dried basil,
dried oregano, salt and pep, and water.
Mix to combine and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce
to a simmer, and allow to cook for about 12-14 minutes, until the pasta is cooked through.
Now it’s time to sprinkle in our parmesan cheese, mini turkey pepperonis, and shredded mozzarella! Mix to combine. Remove from the heat, but
while it’s warm, I like to add some extra pepperoni and mozzarella to the top, cover,
and let it melt for just a minute or two to really make it like a PIZZA pasta. Now there’s
nothing left to do but serve and enjoy! I topped mine off with a bit of fresh parsley.
This one actually tastes like pizza, it's crazy and such a fun weeknight dinner twist!
