Get dinner on the table in under 30 minutes and only dirty one dish in the process with this one-pot spaghetti with feta and sun-dried tomatoes.
A dinner that’s easy, quick, only uses one pot, have all the ingredients on hand, and it’s delicious? Sounds like a good deal to me. In fact that is exactly why I made this for dinner.
I did substituted angel hair from the original recipe for regular whole-wheat spaghetti because I dislike the texture of angel hair pasta. I find it easy to over-cook and thus results in a unappealing slimy texture. Thicker noodles are preferred, in all shapes and sizes!
Anyone else on team thicc pasta?
After you cook the spaghetti al dente, You simply stir in a quality olive oil (times like these matter), feta, sun-dried tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, garlic, and fresh basil (dry would also work). From there just season to taste with salt and pepper.
While this can stand alone as a vegetarian dish, if you prefer meat in your meal I would suggest serving it with grilled chicken or Italian sausage (will likely serve 6 with added protein). I was feeling the bars so I served mine with a side of bread.
Some other all-in-one pot recipes include: One Skillet Corned Beef Pot Pie with Potato Chip Crust, One-Pot Sausage & Swiss Chard Pasta, and One-Pot Tortellini with Sausage, Kale & Peas.
