One-Pot Pasta With Tomatoes, White Beans and Pesto is a rustic Italian meal with wonderful flavor and requires the use of only one pot. Perfect for large gatherings and entertaining simplicity.
- 3 1/4 cups dry bow-tie pasta
- 3 cups water
- 2 MAGGI Chicken Flavor Bouillon Cubes

COMBINE pasta, water and bouillon in large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cook, stirring frequently, for 8 to 10 minutes or until pasta is tender and broth has reduced to about 1/2 cup; do not drain. Reduce heat to low; add pesto.

Review This Recipe
A fine recipe
Fast, savory, plentiful, and cheap. Bravisimo!
Use 4 tomatoes.. a bit too much on the pasta side. Could also add a 1/2 cup of finely trimmed broccoli if you want to give it a bit more color.
You will not regret making this recipe!
family loves it!
My family loves this it is the best thing i tryed!!!
A VERY GOOD RECIPE. AFTER A DAY AT THE POOL, WITH ALL INGREDIENTS ON HAND, IT TOOK NO TIME TO COOK. THE ONLY PROB I SEE IS THAT IT NEED A LITTLE MORE COLOR, SO I ADDED MORE TOMATOES (I USED ROMA ONES ANYWAY) I LIVE IN ITALY AND EVERYONE EJOYED IT, EVEN MY ITALIAN FRIENDS!! THANKS!!!!
Quick and Easy
This was actually very good. I think there's enough for five servings. I used 3/4 of the container of pesto sauce. DH, who doesn't like anything without meat, gave this a thumbs up. I will make it again!
I made this for me and my boyfriend and we both really enjoyed it, my only suggestion was to reduce the pesto to 3/4 of a package instead of the full one it was a little overwhelming.
Absolutely loved it, will make this a common recipe in our house.
Beauty in a Bowl
Really great comfort food. Add just a touch of dried red chili flakes.
Very Good and Easy!
This was very tasty. Easy and Quick too! I added a bit of balsamic vinegar for an extra punch. Everyone loved it.
A first time smash!
This was the first time I'd made this recipe and it was a smash hit with the adults in the house. My children are finicky eaters, but they loved the tomatoes and pasta. I used canned tomatoes as I was in a hurry, but added Fava Beans and mushrooms to make it a little more interesting. You could also add Ro-Tel Tomatoes for a spicier kick.
Could be better
Great idea and good taste but less pesto and more tomato and beans would be preferable.
