15 Easy One Pot Pasta Recipes

Pasta is a student staple, but eating pesto pasta for months on end can get a bit boring (although, to be fair, pesto pasta with cheese is one of the best things ever. So maybe not). However, it is nice to switch things up a little every now and again – pasta pots are the best way to do that, too, as they take no time to make and require very few ingredients! We’ve gathered plenty of easy one pot pasta recipes, here, for vegans, veggies, and meat-eaters alike – a lot of them call for special types of pasta, but in all honesty, you can easily just use whatever you have lying around in your cupboard.

This super simple one-pot recipe has tomatoes, anchovies, and olives – if you can’t find bucatini, use a thicker pasta noodle! Recipe here:
