One Pot Pasta

Here is a delicious and fun pasta recipe that uses only one pot.


- Your favourite tiny pasta ( these little tubes are cute!)

- Your favourite beans (Here I used kidney because it was in the fridge - but it works great with white cannellini beans or any bean of your choice) The beans should be already cooked or use canned. Strain and rinse your canned beans.

- Olive oil
- Garlic
- Tomato paste (or a pure strained tomato sauce)
- Salt & Pepper
- Worcestershire sauce


1-In a medium sized pot on the burner set to medium.

2-Add olive oil and sautee some garlic (this depends on your taste!)

3-When it's beautiful and fragrant add your tomato paste and fry it around so it caramelizes (cooks that raw taste out of it)

4- Throw in your pasta (Yes, dry pasta!!) and fry it around.

5- Add enough boiling water from the kettle to cover the pasta (the pot is hot and the water hitting it can cause some steam so be cautious!)

6- Add all the other seasonings in, salt and pepper, a splash of worcestershire sauce.

7- Stir the pasta so it doesn't stick to the bottom and add your beans. Cover and reduce to Medium low.

8- You can peek and stir from time to time .. it will be done very quickly!

Enjoy !!
