One-Pot Creamy Spinach Spaghetti Recipe

I love anything that requires minimal washing up. Therefore, I’m constantly coming up with new one-pot recipe ideas. It makes life a little easier and means you can spend less time at the sink – win win! This meal is the only thing Molly will eat when she’s teething. It’s great for baby led weaning to as it’s soft and easy to chew. However, it’s equally just as good for older children, teens and adults! It’s really creamy and delicious. If you’re dairy-free, just skip the cheese and replace the cows milk with oat milk. All of my recipes are really easy to follow and never involve too many ingredients. I hope you enjoy!

This is enough for 1 child so multiply by however many people are eating the meal.


60g spaghetti

1 handful of spinach leaves or 1 ball of frozen spinach

200ml milk

1 handful of grated cheese

1 pinch of pepper

1 heaped tablespoon of flour

6 tablespoons of water


Firstly, pop the spaghetti in to a pan of boiling water.

Meanwhile mix the flour and water together in a cup (mix well).

Now grate the cheese and leave to one side.

When there is about 2 mins left on the spaghetti, pop the spinach into the pan (3 mins if frozen).

When the spinach and spaghetti is cooked, drain and tip back into the pan. Now add the milk and simmer on a low heat. Now gradually pour the thick flour paste into the pan and stir at the same time.

Now add the cheese and stir really well! Leave for 1 min. If you need more liquid at a little more milk. If you’d like the sauce thicker, make more flour paste.

Serve and enjoy!
