OnePot Pasta with Artichokes and Asparagus


Do you have one-pot pasta secret tips? Mine are that for a successful one pot pasta we need:

1- some crunchy (crispy veggies, herbs)
2- some softness (mozzarella, other melted cheeses, egg, mushrooms, very well cooked tomatoes)
3- some satisfaction (cheese, meat, prosciutto, ham, chicken…)
4- some colour (rainbow food, herbs and spices).

This one-pot pasta has it all. Colourful and appetising, it can be adapted to suit your requirements with GF pasta, or without prosciutto etc.


  • Squid-ink pasta: 250g
  • Cherry tomatoes: a punnet, chopped in halves.
  • Artichokes hearts: 150g
  • A bunch of fresh asparagus, hard bits removed.
  • Fresh Mozzarella, 60g
  • Prosciutto, optional, 150g
  • Olive oil: 2tbsp
  • For topping: basil and parmesan

Let’s do it:

  1. Place all the ingredients in a large pot (except the asparagus)
  2. Add 700ml of cold water
  3. Season to taste
  4. Cook on medium to high temperature, for 10-15min, according to pasta, some liquid should remains in the pan.
