One Pot Pasta

Pasta+ canned beans + frozen veggies = one pot pasta. My “one pot” theme continues, but this one is an original using interchangeable ingredients already in your kitchen. I chose spaghetti, cannellini/navy/white beans, frozen peas and fresh tomatoes, which resulted in a healthy yet buttery dish due to the beans coating the pasta.


Here’s how:

Boil spaghetti or any pasta of choice; add frozen peas towards the end of the boiling time (depends on when its near al dente). Meanwhile, microwave beans in a separate dish and dice 2-3 tomatoes. Drain pasta with lid, retaining pasta & peas mixture in same pot. Add warm beans and diced tomatoes; plus 1 tsp butter, a dash of oregano. Coat lighlty with olive oil, and salt & pepper to taste. Serve warm.
