The Classic One-Pot Pasta Recipe

Traditional One-Pot Pasta Recipe

There’ve been a lot of ciao’s and grazie’s going around our house recently. Why the crazy craving for Italian? Well, since you asked – we’ve teamed up with Ragú to create easy one-pot pasta recipes! After a day of running to and fro, there’s no better feeling than tossing ingredients into a pot, stepping aside, and letting it work its magic. All the while, you get to spend the evening with your family and not over a stove (we all know a watched pot never boils!). Got leftovers? Pack them up for a week’s worth of easy lunch. One-minute, one-pot creations are fail-proof recipes for a delicious day with more time to play.

How-To

Traditional One-Pot Pasta Recipe

Step 1
Head to the kitchen and grab your pasta pot! Gather up all your ingredients. The best part about one pot pasta recipes is that you probably already have all your ingredients in the pantry!

Step 2
Now my favorite step. Throw everything into the pot. (Really, that’s all there is to step two!)

Step 3
Cook on medium to medium-high for 20 minutes. Every pasta pot is different! Check to make sure that your chicken is cooked and your pasta is al dente.
