This One Pot Tomato Basil Pasta with Mushrooms and Spinach is a delicious meatless meal that's ready in under 30 minutes.

I have a mild obsession with one pot pasta meals these days. It is just so satisfying to cook everything in one dish and have an amazing dinner in under 30 minutes. And this creamy One Pot Tomato Basil Pasta with Mushrooms and Spinach definitely hits the spot. It's full of tomato flavor and since the pasta cooks directly in the sauce, it's get thick and creamy from the starch in the pasta. Then paired with the earthy mushrooms and spinach - delish. I usually top mine with some kind of cheese, even cottage cheese is delicious, and sometimes I throw in some chicken, shrimp, or ground turkey sausage for protein.

My son and myself liked it but it was too spicy for my wife.
