One Pot Pasta from Vicki Delany

This has got to be one of the quickest, easiest, and tastiest pasta recipes I’ve ever used. I got it from my daughter, Julia.  The recipe below makes enough for two people, or two meals for one person.  It’s easy to adjust for the number of people you are feeding.

One Pot Pasta with Tomatoes and Peppers

½ onion

½ each red pepper, yellow pepper, green pepper

½ jalapeno pepper

1 package cherry tomatoes

1 tbsp tomato paste

2 cups pasta such as fusilli

4 - 5 cups vegetable broth

Salt and pepper

1 tbsp crème fraiche, or butter

Grated cheese for serving

In a large saucepan, sauté onion and peppers in a splash of olive oil until onions are soft

Add uncooked pasta, cherry tomatoes, tomato paste, and vegetable broth (broth should cover the pasta). Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir well.

Bring to boil and then simmer until pasta is cooked (about 10 minutes) and tomatoes have turned into a beautiful sauce

Add butter or cream and stir until combined and serve with grated cheese, if desired and/or more pepper. 

Coming soon! Tea  and Treachery, the first in the Tea by the Sea series from Kensington!

  1. The perfect combination: easy and tasty, too.
    Well done.

    1. Strange. It posted before I finished with my id

  2. This sounds very good thank you

  3. It does look good. I have been leery of these one pot pastas, since the pasta goes in the sauce uncooked. But the more recipes I see like this, the more I believe.

  4. I love one pot pasta dishes! My youngest really likes peppers, so I am definitely giving this a try! Thank you for the idea and really looking forward to the new books!
