EASY pasta dish called one pot spaghetti recipe. Use just one pot to make this easy 15 minute spaghetti that you and your kids will absolutely love.
I am a Mother of 3 + my husband and I work full time, so needless to say I am always interested in finding and creating easy dinners! Italian is one of our favorite types of food but often times it is too time consuming with our busy schedule…..until now. I came up with this simple one pot spaghetti meal that we all love, it’s less than $15 total, and an easy pasta dish I can throw together when we get home from everyone’s daily activities…..let me show you how you can make it for your family too! 😉 Special thanks goes out to Bertolli for sponsoring this post so we could share our easy pasta dish with you.

My oldest daughter does the dishes so she REALLY loves this easy pasta recipe because she literally has only one pan to clean!
Just like traditional spaghetti recipes you need items like sauce, noodles, meat, and spices, but this recipe gets rid of the multiple pans and strainer you typically need. Here’s what you do and what you’ll need.
The two main items, that are the most important, are the sauce and noodles. At Ralph’s they have a whole line of Tuscan Inspired noodles and of course our favorite style of Bertolli® sauce….olive oil & garlic!
- For this one pot spaghetti meal I use the long pasta spirals from the Taste of Italy® pastas they have to choose from there…such a fun shape and great taste too. Some fresh garlic (can’t get enough), an onion, and about a pound of ground beef are all you need…..here’s a printable recipe for you to keep on hand.
One pot spaghetti
Easy pasta dish
- 1 jar spaghettisauce
- 8 oz noodles
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1/4 onion
- 2 cups water
- mushrooms optional
- 1 lb ground beef optional
- Brown your ground beef/or turkey in your one pot with a bit of olive oil. Add your diced onion and garlic in with your meat and cook a bit, then add 2 cups of water and your Bertolli sauce and wait until that boils. Add about 8 oz. of long pasta spiral noodles to the pot (break noodles into thirds before adding). Add sliced mushrooms if desired at this point. Simmer for about 15 min. or until noodles are tender.
Now let me show you step by step how easy this is…..this is the only way I make spaghetti nowadays! First you will want a pot that will fit it all, typically the pot you use to boil your spaghetti noodles in will fit all of the above ingredients.
Put a few tbsp. of olive oil in the bottom and brown your meat. Once that is done you will want to get your onion and fresh garlic diced up so it can all simmer together for a bit. If you are really running low on time just add dehydrated onion and minced garlic out of the jar (been there done that).
Once your ground beef or turkey is cooked it is time to add 2 cups of water and your Bertolli® sauce! One jar is just the right amount for this easy recipe and we love the bold flavors this olive oil & garlic style brings.
Once your meat/water/sauce mixture has come to a full boil then you add your noodles. These spiral ones are our favorite! What’s great about this meal, other than the fact it is super fast and easy to make, is that you break up the noodles into thirds before cooking so kids have a much easier time eating (no super messy faces or long noodles dropping on the table). I like to add a few sliced mushrooms at this point too! 😉 From start to finish this only takes me about 20 minutes to do. Pair it with a quick salad and you’ve got yourself a quick, delicious, and inexpensive meal that I guarantee your whole family will love.
