One Pot, Zero Panic

These pasta dishes couldn't be simpler: All of the ingredients get thrown into one pot, and as the pasta simmers, the sauce reduces to coat it perfectly. Try them out for your next potluck party. No one will ever guess that the ingredients were all cooked together in the same pot — we guarantee it.

One-Pot Spaghetti with Fresh Tomato Sauce

This one-pot meal is perfect for the beginner cook: Everything but the cheese goes into one skillet, and it all magically comes together. The tomato paste is here for a little flavor insurance, just in case your tomatoes aren't at their best. Feel free to add an extra tablespoon of tomato paste when tomatoes are out of season.

One-Pot Linguine with Pesto

There's no need to drain the pasta water here, as most of it boils off, leaving just enough to help disperse the pesto sauce. Grape tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and soppressata make great, flavorful additions.
