This one pot recipe is perfect for an easy dinner. Combine just a handful of ingredients into a pot, boil, stir, and it’s ready to eat.
I really enjoyed making the one pot tomato and basil pasta, so next I experimented with a creamy Alfredo one. This recipe uses only 5 ingredients (6 if you are adding the spinach) and is ready in 20 minutes.
It’s creamy, cheesy, and ridiculously easy. I actually liked this even better than the tomato basil one.
I added in some spinach, but you can mix it up and do shrimp or anything else that goes well with Alfredo sauce.
I will definitely be making this recipe a lot.

One Pot Alfredo Pasta
- 8 oz uncooked pasta
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 14 oz chicken broth
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 bunch fresh spinach leaves
- 2 cups shredded parmesan cheese
- fresh parsley optional, for garnish
- black pepper optional, to taste
Add pasta, garlic, chicken broth, cream, and spinach into a large, wide pot. Bring to a boil, and then lower stove temperature to keep it at a low boil, with lid only partially on. Stir a few times to mix. Boil for about 10 minutes. Remove lid and boil for an additional 5 minutes. Most of the sauce will be evaporated, but you want some remaining.
Turn off stove. Add in cheese and stir until melted. If desired, add black pepper to taste. Serve with fresh parsley if desired.
