One Pot “Antipasto” Pasta

You all know I’m all about quick and easy weeknight dinners!

No one wants to stand in front of the stove for hours after work…. And let’s be honest, there’s only so much takeout you can order until your wallet and waistband have had enough!

This one pot pasta, has all the flavors of one of my favorite things, antipasto! Tomatoes, olives and artichokes! Need I say more?

From start to finish this dish will take you 30 mins and with only one pot to clean up, you’ll be relaxing on the couch in no time!

One pot pasta

  • 1/4 of a pack of spaghetti (that’s the usual for our family)
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 can of vegetable broth
  • 1 can of roasted tomatoes
  • 1 can marinated artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1 cup, pitted black olives
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp fresh thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Optional feta cheese to top
    In a large pot, bring your water to a boil. Then add your pasta, broth, tomatoes, artichokes, onions, olives and thyme. On high heat.
    Allow everything to return to a boil, and stir.
    Bring pasta to a simmer and lower to medium heat. Continue to occasionally stir as the pasta cooks.
    The water will eventually reduce, while the pasta cooks, and turn into more of a sauce.
    Once the pasta is cooked (approx 14 minutes) season to taste with salt and pepper.
    Serve while still hot and garnish with crumbled feta if you’d like!
