This recipe is a perfect family week night dinner recipe, quick and easy to prepare and you just need one big pot to make it. And it’s a delicious vegetarian dish! First you prepare the tomato sauce, then you add the pasta and the cooking water in the same pot, let it cook and add the spinach and mascarpone at the  very end. The One-Pot pasta  with tomato sauce and mascarpone is ready to eat!

This One-Pot pasta recipe was my first attempt at a One-Pot meal recipe, inspired by Ciao Veggie blog, and I have been very surprised by the result: the pasta is so creamy and tasty thanks to the mascarpone, and the spinach adds a nice crunchy texture to the sauce.

I put together a few advices to make sure you will have a great result:

  • You can basically prepare this One-Pot pasta with any kind of tomato sauce that you like (with basil, peppers, carrots, curry etc.) and adapt it according to what you have in the fridge.
  • The proportion of water might vary regarding the type of pasta, so it is better to keep an eye on it during the cooking, stir occasionally and add a bit more water if needed. It it better if the pasta is slightly “al dente” Italian style before adding the spinach, it will get tender by the end of the last steps of the preparation.
  • On the other hand, it is ok if the sauce is a little bit liquid at the end of the cooking time, it will turn into a delicious sauce once you add the mascarpone.
  • Even if the volume of the raw spinach seems to be huge, don’t forget that the leaves will shrink once they are  cooked, so you won’t have so much remaining after cooking.

Bon appétit!
