One-Pot Tomato & Mushroom Pasta

One-Pot Tomato & Mushroom Pasta

We love simple cooking that’s full of flavour, and this one-pot tomato & mushroom pasta hits the spot.

Sure, one-pot meals are quick and super simple, but the best thing is you’ll be left with hardly any washing up!

We were actually skeptical for a while because we realise this isn’t exactly a traditional way of cooking pasta. But this recipe is a winner.

Most of the same rules still apply: keep an eye on the pasta because you don’t want to overcook it, otherwise the pasta will turn to a sludge. In fact, you want it slightly undercooked, otherwise known as al dente, so the pasta holds up well in the sauce.

Onion, garlic, mushroom, tomato and basil are all tried-and-tested ingredients that will give the pasta a lovely freshness. Then the lemon lifts everything up, cutting through the pasta with a burst of zesty flavour.

We hope you enjoy!
