One Pot Meal!



When you are stressed for time and pulled in so many different directions, what could be better then making a simple but delicious meal in one pot? I have made this recipe on numerous occasions and we all love it here in the Kelly household.You don't have to preboil the pasta, the liquid reduces down to a nice sauce. You can add virtually any vegetable to this that you choose, or this recipe is great as it is!

Ingredients


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
6 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 (14.5-ounce) can unsalted petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1 1/2 cups unsalted chicken stock (such as Swanson)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
8 ounces whole-grain spaghetti or linguine (such as Barilla)
1/2 teaspoon salt
10 ounce fresh spinach
1 ounce Parmesan cheese, grated (about 1/4 cup)
Preparation

1. Heat a Dutch oven or large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add oil; swirl to coat.

2. Add onion and garlic to pan; sauté 3 minutes or until onion starts to brown.

3. Add tomatoes, stock, oregano, and pasta, in that order. Bring to a boil.

4. Stir to submerge noodles in liquid.

5. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 7 minutes or until pasta is almost done.

6. Uncover; stir in salt.

7. Add spinach in batches, stirring until spinach wilts. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes.

8. Sprinkle with cheese.

Riff: Use fresh grape tomatoes instead, and add fresh herbs.

Riff: Swap out spaghetti for any short pasta shape, such as elbow macaroni, rotini, or shells.

Riff: Try adding chopped skinless, boneless chicken thighs, ground beef, or ground turkey for a heartier dish.
