One-Pot Spaghetti

  Ever thought about making a spaghetti recipe where there is minimal clean up and it's all cooked in ONE POT? Well, you don't have to look any further, because this recipe is for you! . Our whole family loved it, so if you are ever short on time try this recipe out. 

One of my old standby's for cooking is this red and white checkered Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. I honestly have never made a tasteless recipe from it. If you don't have that cookbook, it is a must-have! Hope you enjoy this recipe from it. 

*I adapted this recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook . You can check out the original recipe from their recipe.

Spaghetti Recipe 
Serves: 4 Prep: 10 minutes Cooking Time: 30 minutes

8 oz chicken or turkey sausage
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1 medium onion, chopped
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
14 oz chicken or beef broth
1 3/4 cups water
1 6-oz can tomato paste
1 tsp Italian seasoning (or a mix of basil, oregano and/or thyme)
6 oz dried spaghetti, broken
1/4 cup Parmesan, Asiago or Romano cheese, grated

1. In a large saucepan cook the sausage, fresh mushrooms, onion, and garlic until meat is brown and onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Drain if needed.
 2. Stir in broth, water, tomato paste, Italian seasoning, and pepper. Bring to boiling.
 3. Add the broken spaghetti, a little at a time, stirring constantly. Return to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low.
 4. Boil gently, uncovered, for 17 to 20 minutes or until spaghetti is tender and sauce is desired consistency, stirring frequently.
 Serve with Parmesan cheese.


Plan and Prep Ahead 

Here are some helpful techniques to make life a little easier once dinner time hits. These tips will especially help those that work full-time and don't have a lot of time to prepare dinner. 

~Chop onion, garlic and sausage ahead of time and keep in fridge until time of use.


Who likes to CHANGE IT UP? 

 ~Instead of sausage use ground turkey or chicken.
~Replace spaghetti with linguine or a smaller pasta.

I love spaghetti since I was a child. My mom always cooks me, my brothers and my sister whenever it's our birthday or other special occasions that needs celebrating. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Now I can cook for my mom.
