One Pot Spaghetti and Meatballs

One Pot Spaghetti and Meatballs¬†Pressed for time and need to get dinner on the table but you want comfort food? How about spaghetti and meatballs cooked in one pot? It’s ready in less than 30 minutes!

You can make this dish using some pantry staples like jarred spaghetti sauce, canned mushrooms and frozen meatballs you can buy in bulk from the gracery store.

I used a fire roasted tomato and garlic sauce for my dish and added red pepper flakes to give it a little more heat.  I also threw in additional oregano and some dried basil that I dehydrated this past summer.

This One Pot Spaghetti and Meatballs dish was a hit at our house and I love that it’s a fast and easy way to get some comfort food on the table.

Total time
Recipe type: Main
Serves: 6
  • 16 oz. spaghetti noodles
  • 4 cups of chicken broth
  • (1) 24 oz. jar of your favorite pasta sauce (I used fire roasted tomato and garlic)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • (1) 7 oz. can of sliced mushrooms (or use fresh)
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 Tbsp garlic, minced
  • 2 dozen frozen Italian style meatballs
  • salt and pepper
  • fresh or dried oregano
  • fresh or dried basil
  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • parmesan cheese
  1. Set your stove top to high heat and start layering your ingredients in a large Dutch oven.
  2. Place the chopped onions in first and then lay the pasta (broken in half) on top. This will keep the pasta from sticking to the bottom of the Dutch oven.
  3. Pour in the chicken stock and pasta sauce so the liquids can start heating up while you add the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Next, add the halved tomatoes, mushrooms, minced garlic, oregano, basil, red pepper flakes, and frozen meatballs.
  5. Bring to a boil and then lower the heat to low and let simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to help the pasta separate.
  6. Cook until pasta is done and meatballs are cooked through.
  7. Serve with parmesan cheese.
