The truth is we were skeptical about one-pot pasta for a while because – yes – we realise this isn’t exactly a traditional way of cooking pasta!
But this recipe is a winner. Cooking the pasta this way adds more starch which creates a wonderful sauce.
Make sure you keep an eye on the pasta because you don’t want it overcooked.
In fact, you want the pasta 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!

- 1 onion
- 200g / 7oz mushrooms
- 3 garlic cloves
- olive oil, for frying
- 200g / 7oz cherry tomatoes
- 1 lemon
- salt and pepper
- 200g / 7oz spaghetti
- 1 tsp paprika
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- small handful of basil
- 200g / 7oz spinach
- Peel and thinly slice the onion. Slice the mushrooms, then peel and dice the garlic cloves. Heat a little oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. As soon as the oil is hot, add the onion, mushrooms and garlic, and fry for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Slice the cherry tomatoes in half. Add them to the saucepan with the juice and zest from the lemon, paprika, 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of pepper. Give everything a stir, then add the spaghetti and 500ml (2 cups) of hot water from a kettle. Bring the water to the boil, then lower and simmer until the spaghetti is just about cooked (around 12-15 minutes), stirring every couple of minutes.
- Meanwhile roughly chop the basil leaves. Then stir the nutritional yeast, spinach and most of the basil into the pasta, and remove the pan from the heat. Keep stirring until the spinach has mostly wilted. Sprinkle any leftover basil on top to serve. Yuuum.
