One Pot Spaghetti

Once you experience the ease and flavor-packed results of our one-pot spaghetti, the traditional way might seem a tad less appealing. The convenience of using just one pot not only simplifies the process but also streamlines the cleanup, leaving you more time to savor the rich flavors. The addition of heavy cream introduces a subtle creaminess, elevating this dish to new heights.

Spaghetti Ingredients

  1. Meat: Ground beef serves as the foundation for this recipe, but alternatives are available.
  2. Pasta: Opt for traditional spaghetti noodles to maintain the classic appeal of this dish.
  3. Heavy Cream: A touch of heavy cream adds a delightful creaminess, but fear not, as suitable replacements will be explored below.

Can I Make This Without a Dutch Oven?

Absolutely! A spacious pot with a lid is a perfect alternative, ensuring the noodles are fully submerged in the liquid.

Can I Make One Pot Spaghetti Without Ground Beef?

Certainly! Embrace versatility by choosing ground Italian sausage, ground turkey, or skipping the meat entirely based on your preferences.

Can I Make This Without Heavy Cream?

Certainly! Whole milk makes for an excellent substitute, retaining the creaminess. While reduced-fat milk can be used, it may compromise the lush texture achieved with heavy cream or whole milk. If you choose to omit it entirely, consider adjusting with additional broth or pasta water for sufficient liquid.

How Can I Store This?

Cover and refrigerate for 3-4 days, reheating in the microwave for a quick and delicious meal.
