One pot meals are one of my favorites. They are simple, require little work (with less dishes) and are done in less than 30 minutes! This one pot Caprese pasta should only take you 20 minutes, from start to finish!

This pasta has everything that you love about a Caprese salad. The tomatoes, mozzarella, basil and balsamic! It’s also light on calories, filling and has tons of flavor. I’ve made made this recipe about 3 times in the past month (tweaking a little here and there), and my family still hasn’t gotten sick of it. I also had leftovers and dropped some by a friend who was moving and she said her family all loved it too! You really can’t go wrong with pasta, in my book. ;)
