To make this One-Pot Lentil Mushroom Pasta, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup uncooked lentils
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 8 ounces dry pasta
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, for serving (optional)


To prepare this One-Pot Lentil Mushroom Pasta, start by heating the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the diced onion and cook until it is softened and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms are softened and the garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Next, add the lentils, oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 1 minute, stirring to coat the lentils in the spices. Add the tomato paste and stir to combine. Then add the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Add the pasta and stir to combine. Reduce the heat to low and cover the pot. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is cooked and the lentils are softened.

Once the pasta is cooked, turn off the heat and stir in the chopped parsley. Serve the One-Pot Lentil Mushroom Pasta with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired. Enjoy!
