One-Pot Mediterranean Pasta

Makes 4 servings When we say one pot, we mean it! All of the ingredients cook together—pasta included—and the finished dish is flavorful and saucy with less than 10 minutes of work! If you like, you can top the cooked pasta with sautéed shrimp or flaked tuna.

Ingredients

  • 12 oz spaghetti
  • 16 Kalamata olives, pitted and halved
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup roughly chopped roasted red peppers
  • 2 tablespoons oregano leaves
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 1/2 cups water
  • 4 oz feta, crumbled

Directions

  1. To a large saucepan or shallow skillet, add the spaghetti, olives, garlic, shallot, red peppers, oregano, lemon juice, salt, and oil. Pour in the water and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  2. Cook, stirring frequently, until the pasta is al dente and the water is absorbed, about 8 minutes. Divide the portions into bowls and sprinkle with feta before serving.

    When are you supposed to add the shallot?

      Whoops! Shallot goes in with everything else. I’ve updated the recipe to reflect that, thanks for catching! Also, we haven’t tried adding wine in place of some of the water, but I don’t see why you couldn’t. Let us know if you try!

    What about replacing some of the water with white wine?
