This is the new Barilla® Pronto™ pasta that you’ve been hearing about. It cooks in one pan in 10 minutes. There’s waiting for water to boil and no need to drain. It’s al dente perfect in minutes; this is super convenient for busy parents!

Barilla® Pronto™ comes in five shapes: Elbows, Rotini, Penne, Spaghetti and Linguine.

I used rotini in my recipe, but you can use whichever shape you have on hand.

This recipe is a quick and easy meal. I used several different ingredients to create the sauce, giving it a depth of flavor even though it cooks in such little time. You’ll be amazed at the flavor!

This recipe is a meatless meal. However, you can easily add cooked chicken. Rotisserie chicken would be great in it, but use whatever leftover chicken you have. Italian sausage or pepperoni would also be a good addition to the pasta.

One Pan Spinach Cheese and Fire Roasted Tomato Pasta Tips

  1. I used fire-roasted diced tomatoes. You can use fire-roasted, peeled whole tomatoes. I would not substitute plain canned tomatoes in this recipe. The fire roasting gives the tomatoes a unique flavor.
  2. Always use freshly grated parmesan, not the pre-grated, jarred parmesan. The difference in taste is like night and day.
  3. As well, I used dollops of ricotta in the pasta. You could skip it (but why?) or you can use goat cheese or cottage cheese.
  4. Finally, I used a mild enchilada sauce, kick the flavor up in your pasta and use hot if you prefer.
