Easy Peasy One Pot Spaghetti

Everyone loves spaghetti. Now we’ve come across a method that has you making homemade spaghetti in a jiffy! And with only one pot, clean up is easy peasy too.

One Pot Spaghetti

2-3 tablespoons olive oil
1 lb ground beef
1 lb. Italian sausage
2 carrots
2 stalks of celery (including leaves if there are any)
1/2 onion
4-8 oz fresh mushroom*
1/2 bunch of Italian parsley
4 cloves of garlic
28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
2 tablespoons dehydrated onion flakes
1 teaspoon dried basil
2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
1 cup heavy cream
4 cups chicken broth (we prefer homemade or Better Than Bouillon0
1lb. spaghetti (we used Barilla gluten-free spaghetti)

(* If you prefer to use less meat you can increase the amount of mushrooms in the sauce as they have a similar texture to meat when cooked in the sauce.)

In a dutch oven or other large pot with a lid, heat olive oil and add the meat. Cook until well browned.While the meat is browning add all the vegetables to a food processor and chop until fine. Add the chopped vegetables to the meat and saute with the meat for 3-4 minutes.

Add the crushed tomatoes, the oregano, the basil, the onion flakes, salt and black pepper and crushed red pepper if you like your sauce a bit spicier. Stir well.

Add the cream and the chicken broth and stir again to combine everything well. The sauce will be very runny and thin at this point but the spaghetti will absorb much of the liquid as it cooks. Add the spaghetti and make sure it is fully submerged in the liquid.

Lower the flame to a simmer and add the cover. Cook for 18-20 minute testing to see if the pasta is done, al dente, after about 18 minutes. As soon as it is done turn off the flame and serve immediately with fresh grated parmesan cheese and more red pepper flakes if desired.
