So let’s take a look at our ingredients first:

Spaghetti: A widely used variety of pasta and is fun to eat that pasta, especially I personally love this pasta.

Cherry Tomatoes: A single tomato fulfills our 40% of the daily requirement of Vitamin C as per HEALTH.COM. They provide more nutrients like vitamin A, Vitamin K, and supports heart health.

Spinach: Spinach, again a very nutritious and healthy green & leafy vegetable. It adds a beautiful green color, beautiful taste and lots of nutritional value to our recipe.

Olive oil: The healthiest option among oil or butter, as it is full of vitamin E, which helps strengthening our hair roots.

Pecorino Cheese: A flavorful cheese, good source of calcium and protein. As it is full of fat, but still we will use because only a small amount of this cheese adds a dynamic taste to our dish.

Basil: A herb with beautiful aroma and flavor, adds a very vibrant green color to our recipe and a fresh touch.

Products and Ingredients I have used are mentioned below:

Let’s start step by step of our one-pan pasta recipe;

Chop cherry tomatoes, garlic, onion, red chili. Chop everything nice and thin as our pasta will be cooked fast so it’s very important to slice everything as thin as possible.

Now it’s time to assemble everything into a pan. In a large pan assemble spaghetti, onions in one corner, tomatoes, chili, and tear off some of the fresh basil leaves, spinach leaves, and a drizzle of oil. In the end, season with some salt and pepper and then add water or chicken stock. Turn on the heat and cook for about 10 minutes.

Keep stirring with a tong, so that our pasta gets cooked well. And after 10 minutes our smooth, silky pasta is cooked well.

Now remove the pan from the stove, and add grated Pecorino cheese, a dash of salt and pepper if required, tear some of the fresh basil leaves and give it a final stir.

And boom our one-pan pasta is ready to be served.
