One – Pot Pasta à l’Arrabbiata


One Pot Pasta One Pasta Pot Arrabbiata

I’ve been putting off trying the infamous “One Pot Pasta” for forever. Every time I saw an amazing picture I told myself that I have to try it, but since I didn’t really know how and if it would work out I just kept putting it off until now. I finally gave it try and I have to say: I will never go back. This will be my “go to” method for pasta making now. If it’s possible the lazy way without compromising any flavors, I’ll be the first to do it. 

I was so skeptical of how this would turn out. I think the key to success is DON’T USE TOO MUCH WATER.

Below I’ll share with you a creamy à l’arrabiata style recipe.

One – Pot Pasta à l’Arrabbiata 

Makes 1 large serving, Cooking time: 7-10 minutes (depends on pasta) 

2 large shallots, finely chopped

big handful of fresh basil

1/2 red onion, chopped

1/2 pepper, chopped

smash tamari sauce

1 red chili, chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

handful rocket (add this after the pasta is cooked)

2 heaping tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tbsp sundried tomatoes

a couple cherry tomatoes

1/2 can chopped tomatoes

about 2 cups water (+1/2 tsp veggie stock)

spices: pepper, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp parsley, 1 tsp basil – all dried, salt 

pasta of choice (I used brown rice)

optional: vegan cream/quark


1. Chuck EVERYTHING (except salt + rocket) into a large pot.

2. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer until pasta is cooked properly. Don’t forget to stir from time to time to keep pasta from sticking to the bottom.

3. Add salt + rocket last.

(The water should have cooked down to a creamy consistency. Make sure to not use too much water, you can always add more in the end, if you need. But this is crucial! Maximum 2 cups per serving.)

      Hi Bea, I haven’t tried it with rice so I have no idea. But it could be a great idea 🙂 Let me know if you’ve tried it out!

  4. Would this still work if I left the nutritional yeast out? Only because I don’t have any. Thankyou 🙂

    • shanyaraleonie Reply

      haha absolutely! The nutritional yeast is just for the cheesy flavor 😉

  5. I made this tonight without the nutritional yeast though and it was fantastic! Thanks!

      Oh really? But the nutritional yeast is da best part for the kind of cheesy flavor 😛 Happy that you liked it 🙂

      Hey! Thank you so much 🙂 It’s vegan sour cream style, just some soy yoghurt, herbs and some lemon juice + apple cider vinegar 🙂
