Whenever I think of hassle-free time-saving recipes, spaghetti and pasta are some of the options that come to my mind. But the lazy being that I am, sometimes cooking the spaghetti separately and straining it also sounds like a big deal… So one day I thought of trying out a One Pot Spinach Spaghetti recipe which is a quick and easy to make recipe. And especially, when there is an extreme time crunch my One Pot Spinach Spaghetti recipe is my go-to recipe.

How to make One Pot Spinach Spaghetti Nutritious
Whenever we talk of a nutritional meal, spaghetti does not actually make the list. I make some changes in the ingredients thereby making it more nutrition. I use either wheat or multigrain spaghetti instead of the regular spaghetti. Sometimes I also like tossing in some canned kidney beans or canned garbanzo beans with the spaghetti.
Enjoy your Spaghetti 🙂
