I love the idea of one-pot cooking. It is just so fascinating to me. One pot to cook with… one pot to clean?! Heaven.
One-Pot Spaghetti with White Beans & Spinach
1/2 large yellow onion, chopped small
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 (14 ounce) can crushed tomatoes, low or no salt added
1 to 1 1/2 Tbsp Italian seasoning
1 vegan bouillon cube, no salt added, crumbled
Pinch red pepper flakes, to taste
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 to 1 tsp sea salt
3 cups water
1 box dried spaghetti
1 (15 ounce) can white beans
2 cups fresh organic baby spinach
In a large pot, layer in the onions, garlic, canned tomatoes and dried ingredients, breaking the spaghetti if necessary (I broke all of the spaghetti noodles in half). Pour the water over top.
Turn the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil; lower the heat and let simmer with a lid. Stir occasionally to prevent the spaghetti from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the spaghetti is cooked al dente and the liquid has thickened into an amazing sauce; turn off the heat and add the spinach and white beans. Stir and let the spinach wilt.
Enjoy immediately and tomorrow for leftovers. The taste just gets better with age :D
