I don’t know about you, but some nights I’m not in the mood to make a dinner at all.

One of my favorite fall back meals is pasta.

Pasta is a great and versatile way to create a delicious dinner without lots of prep work.

It’s also a great meal to make when you are starting to learn how to cook!

This one pot veggie rotini is so easy to make and tastes amazing.

Barilla Pronto Pasta is perfect for those nights when you need dinner on demand.

It doesn’t require any boiling or draining and is made in one pot!

I never knew pasta could be so easy to cook!

How to make one pot veggie rotini

First, add rotini, mushrooms, diced onion and basil, optional red pepper flakes, salt, 3 cups of cold water and 1 cup of marinara sauce to a large pot.

Place pot on burner and turn to high heat.

Cook 10-12 minutes, stirring frequently, until pasta absorbs most of the liquid and has cooked through.

Be careful not to burn the bottom (avoid this by stirring often and removing from heat after most of the water absorbs).

After pasta has cooked, remove from heat and stir in remaining marinara sauce and cheese.

You could also stir in half of the cheese and keep the remaining amount out for topping.

Serve and enjoy!

If you haven’t tried Barilla’s new Pronto Pasta (I used the rotini variety), I highly recommend it.

We bought ours at our local Walmart.

This meal would be especially great for anyone who is new to cooking and living on their own.

It comes together in just 20 minutes but looks impressive!

Another reason why I love this one pot veggie rotini is that it only uses one pan!

I used pre sliced mushrooms to cut down on prep time.

Just add Barilla Pronto Rotini, mushrooms, a little diced onion and basil, and a few other quick ingredients and you’re ready to start cooking!

You get all the satisfaction (and taste!) of a home cooked meal, but without tons of time consuming prep work.

Win-win in my book!

    Made this for dinner tonight and LOVE it. I left out the mushrooms and added 1.5 pounds of ground turkey (browned and added to the pot after cooking). I’ll definitely be making this dish again!

  2. This recipe looks delicious and the perfect meal for a busy night! I’m always strapped for time, and the idea of a pasta that I don’t have to boil or drain sounds perfect! #client
