One Pot Veggie Casserole

One Pot Veggie Casserole

This One Pot Vegetarian Pasta Casserole is made entirely in one pan or skillet. It is made with lots of veggies and cheese that is baked off until golden.


I have a filling and comforting one pot vegetarian casserole today for this week’s ‘One pot dishes‘ theme. My whole family loves pasta (though in different ways) and I am always looking for different pasta dishes. So this one pot pasta dish is my latest trial that was quite tasty and my new favorite.


I was taught to cook pasta in lots and lots of boiling water. So making pasta dishes always involved 2 pots. But when I saw some one pot pasta dishes in Cooking Light magazine, I was intrigued and I bookmarked them. I didn’t get a chance to try until I picked up this theme.


So there’s no need for for a big pot of boiling water to make this dish. All this recipe needs is a big skillet that is oven safe and that’s it, everything goes into the skillet, cooked and straight to the table. This one-dish recipe minimizes kitchen prep, cleanup and delivers maximum flavor.

I used whole wheat pasta and this is probably one of the few recipes I really enjoyed the nutty and chewy texture wholewheat pasta lends. Regular pasta can also be used in the dish, just make sure to reduce the cooking time.
