One Pot Parmesan Pasta


Have you ever tried these one pot pasta dishes before? They are my new favorite recipes! The pasta cooks with everything else! This is truly a one pot dish!


I love chicken parmesan… SO much.  But I don’t always have time to do all the steps to an incredible parmesan. The process, so many dishes to wash, and how long it can take to make it! By the time it’s done, it looks like a bomb went off in my kitchen!  This dish is made with ingredients that are probably in your kitchen, 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!  

The pefect sides for this pasta, are either my homemade Easy Garlic BreadsticksRosemary Garlic Rolls, or No Knead Artisan Bread.  Add a nice green salad and it makes the perfect combination!
