Creamy One Pot Spaghetti


1 pkg (340 g)CATELLI Smart Veggie™ Spaghetti
2 cups (500 mL)each 2% milk and sodium-reduced chicken broth
3 clovesgarlic, minced
3 cups (750 mL)broccoli spears
1 smallred pepper, thinly sliced
1 cup (250 mL)ham steak, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp (1 mL)ground black pepper
1/3 cup (75 mL)grated Parmesan cheese (approx.)


A new trend in preparing pasta is to cook the noodles right in the sauce. This creamy dish is family friendly, easy to make and even easier to clean up after.

  1. Bring milk, broth and garlic to a gentle simmer in a large, deep, skillet set over medium heat.
  2. Break spaghetti noodles in half. Add uncooked spaghetti, broccoli, red pepper, ham and pepper to skillet.  Cook, tossing often, for 8 to 10 minutes or until most of the liquids are absorbed. Remove from heat. Stir in Parmesan cheese.
  3. Cover and let stand for 2 minutes. Serve pasta immediately, with extra cheese (if desired). 



  • Replace the broccoli with asparagus tips or cauliflower florets.
  • Replace the ham with sliced cooked chicken breast.
  • Grate some fresh nutmeg over each serving for a rich flavour accent reminiscent of Alfredo sauce.
