Easy One-Pot Ratatouille Spaghetti Is Veggie Heaven
Kitchn’s Delicious Links column highlights recipes we’re excited about from the bloggers we love. Follow along every weekday as we post our favorites.
We are here to help you stage a mini rebellion against the fact that tomorrow is officially the very last day of summer. Here’s what we’re gonna do: Make this dreamy one-pot pasta filled with summery farmers market produce, pair it with a glass of wine, and eat dinner outside. It’s the perfect way to bid adieu to summer.
We’re huge proponents of the concept of one-pot magic pastas here at Kitchn. Few things are more impressive than throwing all of your ingredients in a big pot and watching it come together in minutes. But the most magical part about them is what happens to the cooking water: As the pasta boils, the water turns into a starchy binder and becomes a super-flavorful sauce that everything can cling to. ABRACADABRA, PEOPLE.
For this yummy ratatouille rendition from Wallflower Kitchen, you will need an onion, garlic, eggplant, zucchini, red pepper, tomatoes, and basil — in addition to spaghetti, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and salt and pepper.
First, heat up the olive oil and sauté the veggies briefly. Add in chopped tomatoes, water, balsamic, and spaghetti. Bring to a boil and simmer for just 10 minutes and you won’t believe your eyes. As the pasta cooks, the sauce will thicken and it’s ready to eat. See? Magic.
The only thing we can’t help you with is making summer last forever. That’s out of our hands.
