Creamy 10-Minute One Pot Pasta

My first one pot pasta recipe went over so well with the internet (LOL) I had to do another. This creamy 10-minute OPP is even better than that (sorry Martha Stewart) so give it a try if you want a quick dinner or meal idea!


12oz pasta (I used linguini)⁣

3-4 cups water (do half broth for richer flavor)⁣

1/4 cup olive oil ⁣

3-4 garlic cloves, chopped ⁣

3/4 cup chopped parsley⁣

2-3 tbsp crushed red pepper ⁣

Salt and pepper to taste ⁣

Cheese of choice (I used goat)


Combine all ingredients (except cheese) in a large skillet – MUST be large enough that all the pasta can be submerged in water otherwise it won’t cook evenly!⁣

Start with 3 cups of water – heat to a light boil and cover, but remove cover and stir pasta frequently so it doesn’t stick to bottom of the pan.

Continue stirring until all the water is absorbed – pasta should be al dente but if it needs to be cooked through more, slowly add water.

Add cheese or topping of choice and enjoy!
