One Pot Italian Pasta

Featuring recipes this month from Healthy Girl Kitchen, here\’s one for Italian pasta! As you hopefully have noticed, this recipe (like many others) is vegan friendly!

One-pot Italian Pasta (vegan)


  • 16 oz pasta of choice I used whole wheat rotini
  • 5.5 cups water
  • 2.5 cups marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup kalamata olives
  • 1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp minced garlic or 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes optional
  • 2 cups spinach
  • Large Pan or Pot


  1. Add all ingredients into a large pan or pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Cook on medium heat, stirring every few minutes until all of the liquid is absorbed. Should take about 10-minutes.
  3. Serve and enjoy!


  • If the liquid completely absorbs but the pasta is still too firm, add more water until it\’s tender enough for you liking. 
  • The ratio is 1 cup of liquid for every 2 ounces of pasta. Marinara sauce is included as a liquid.
