These 5 One-Pot Pastas Will Save You On Busy Weeknights (Recipes)


By Cooking Panda

Sick of doing dishes?

Whipping up dinner on a weeknight can be tough, especially if you get stuck on cooking duty and cleanup duty, as if just one of those isn’t enough work on a busy evening.

Those kinds of nights are the ones where you should work smarter, not harder! Grab your favorite box of pasta and get ready to throw together a filling, flavorful dish that the whole family will love.

The best part? You only need to use one dish for these!

1. Italian Chicken Skillet

With rich wine, lean chicken breasts, saucy tomatoes and leafy greens, you get a healthy, hearty and tasty dinner for just a tiny bit more work than it takes to dump a can of sauce over those noodles.

2. Spinach and Artichoke Wonderpot

What’s a wonderpot, you ask? A wonderpot starts with veggies and aromatics and boils them down to a thick, brothy sauce that you’d swear took tons of work, rather than a few minutes and one pot (but that’ll be our little secret).

3. Linguine and Clam Sauce

Craving some shellfish? This classic dish tastes as gourmet as they come, but it’s almost too easy to make. Technically, you’ll need an extra plate for this one, but it’s so simple and delicious that we can still count it as a one-dish dinner.

4. Spicy Chicken Riggies

With chicken breast, rigatoni noodles, and a cherry pepper tomato cream sauce that gets extra thick from the starchy pasta, this dish is seriously a winner!

5. Creamy Asparagus and Pancetta Penne‚Äč

This brightly colored, veggie-packed dish is chock full of savory, buttery flavors that’ll make you want to get your five a day. Feel free to swap out whatever ingredients you’d like for a seasonal or frozen option.
