A “One Pot Pasta” is a fast pasta dish where all the ingredients, including the pasta, are cooked in a pot. The noodles are cooked together with all other ingredients and thus absorb the taste of the sauce during the cooking time.
A few weeks ago I already showed you a recipe for a one pot pasta with meat sauce, in today’s post I show you a variant with tagliatelle pasta & a creamy ricotta spinach sauce. Have fun cooking!
