One Pot Pasta: Spaghetti Bolognese

Serves 3-4


    One Pot Pasta: Spaghetti Bolognese
  • 8 oz spaghetti, uncooked, rinsed in cold water 
  • 28 oz crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup water or broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy red wine
  • 6 oz tomato paste
  • 1 lb ground meat (any combination of any type of ground meat and/or sausage will work)
  • 4 oz mushrooms, chopped (shiitake suggested but any variety will work)
  • 1 Vidalia onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Parmesan cheese for serving, freshly grated


  1. Combine all ingredients except cheese in a deep sided skillet or saucepan. Stir to break up meat.
  2. Bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally. After 10 minutes, check pasta. If it is too al dente, add 1/4 cup of water and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  3. Serve warm with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

This is a cool idea.
I haven't tried cooking a pasta dish in one pot. Will try this recipe one of these days.

I had to cook the meat (1# veal/1/2# italian sausage) onion and garlic ahead of time. Didn't seem right not to. I also added baby bella mushrooms. Had to add more liquid to finish off the noodles. This was DELICIOUS. And so easy.
