One Pot Parmesan Pasta


You guys… have you tried one pot pasta dishes before?  They. Are. AMAZING!!  No waiting for a big pot of water to boil, no draining, no extra pot to wash… just one pot of pure comfort food.  


I love chicken parmesan… SO much.  But I definitely don’t love the tedious breading process, so many dishes to wash, and how long it can take to make it!  This dish is made with everyday ingredients, and is incredibly flavorful! My husband gave this dish 5 stars!




You can make this one pot chicken parmesan pasta in any large skillet or pot, but I would recommend  making this in a dutch oven.  When I’m stirring the pasta as it cooks, I don’t want to be worried about the liquid sloping up and over the sides.  I’m a messy cook, but no one likes to clean up burn on sauces from their stovetop!  If you don’t have a dutch oven, you can use a deep sided skillet, or a stock pot… but I highly recommend picking up a dutch oven, they have so many uses!!

To go alongside this pasta, I like to serve either my homemade Easy Garlic BreadsticksRosemary Garlic Rolls, or No Knead Artisan Bread.  Add a nice green salad and it makes the perfect trio!
