ONE POT CREAMY LEMON SPINACH PASTA

INGREDIENTS

1 onion, chopped
1 shallot, chopped
4 cloves garlic, mashed
2 tb olive oil or oil of choice
4 cups organic spinach
3 cups veggie broth or bone broth
1 can full fat coconut milk

I make pasta a lot and I‘m OBSESSED with one pot pasta dishes because they are literally ONE POT—you don’t even have to drain the pasta. Most of the water gets absorbed into the pasta, so any sauce you add will make the dish super creamy! If you haven’t tried this cooking method yet, you MUST! Perfect for lazy people like me with 5-star tastebuds!


This ONE POT CREAMY LEMON SPINACH PASTA! is totally vegan friendly, though this time I used bone broth instead of veggie broth because my other obsession in life is bone broth, but that’s beside the point! Here’s what you need to make it:

 

INSTRUCTIONS

In a large pot on the stove, heat oil and sauté the onions, shallot, and garlic for a few minutes until soft.
Next add broth, coconut milk, pasta, sea salt, pepper, and juice of two lemons.
Stir together everything well.
Turn heat to low and cover.
Let simmer 15-18 minutes.
Remove lid and stir in the spinach and lemon zest.
Return lid and turn heat off. NOTE: by this point, the liquid should be about 80-90% absorbed. If you are using gluten free pasta, it will take longer for the liquid to absorb, so wait about 20 minutes to eat.
Add toppings of choice and ENJOYYYYYYY!!!!
