One-Pot Pasta

You read it right – one pot pasta! You just add it all into the pan and away you go! Ideal for those limited cooking areas when out camping!!!



  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp chopped basil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 jar black olives
  • 1/2 jar capers
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 500g spaghetti
  • 350g tomato sauce
  • Salt/pepper to taste
  • 750ml – 1ltr water


Pour the olive oil into a large pan, then add the onions & garlic and cook until translucent.

Add the rest of the ingredients. Yes you heard that right – ALL of it, including the dry spaghetti! Otherwise it wouldn’t be a ‘one pot’, right?

After adding the pasta sauce, refill the sauce jar with water twice, and add it to the pan. Depending on the pasta you are using you might need more or less water, so please adjust as you go along.

Once the pasta starts softening, carefully stir the ingredients and keep stirring regularly until the pasta is soft and all ingredients combined well.

You might need to add a little extra water during this process, as the pasta will soak up a lot – just make sure there is always a little liquid/ sauce surrounding the spaghetti.

Remove from the stove, season with salt & pepper & enjoy!
