Pasta is the ideal all-in-one dish. You can mix together fresh veggies, fragrant herbs, an array of proteins, and sauces both decadent and light together in a single recipe, delivering a nutritionally rich meal without serving up a main and a bunch of sides. And we’re making pasta even more convenient – and easy to cook – with our One-Pot White Wine Pasta.

A recipe that’s a total dream for anyone who loves pasta or hates doing a whole lot of dishes, this cozy and comforting pasta checks all the boxes. One pot? That’s all you need! Fresh veggies? You’ll use white mushrooms, baby spinach, bell pepper and garlic in addition to whole-grain pasta. Protein? We’re adding in some crispy, crunchy turkey bacon to round it all out. This pasta is finished with a white wine sauce that’s simmered with the veggies and a bunch of wonderfully fragrant herbs, ensuring every bite of the finished dish is deeply flavorful. And you’ll have it all on the table in just 30 short minutes.

In addition to delivering on speed and substance, this one-pot pasta dish is highly nutritious. While the spinach serves up must-have nutrients like vitamins A, C and K1 plus a good dose of iron, folic acid and calcium, the bell pepper delivers a whole lot of immunity-boosting vitamin C. And the mushrooms offer a lot of vitamin D and selenium. You’ll truly have all of your bases covered with the array of ingredients mixed into this quick and easy dinner.
