If you’re looking for something simple to put together in just a few minutes, you’re going to LOVE this! Super easy and versatile, with just one pot!
Using the basic recipe, you can add your favorite flavors to make it your own! I’ve added zucchini but you can eliminate it or replace it with peppers, mushrooms or whatever you happen to have on hand!
I usually serve this up with a salad and some garlic bread for a fast weeknight meal!
One Pot Chicken Pasta

Season chicken with salt & pepper. Heat olive oil over medium heat and cook chicken until no pink remains. Set aside.
Add onion and garlic to the pan. Cook until onion is tender, about 3 minutes.
Add 3 cups broth, tomatoes and cream and bring to a boil. Add pasta. Let simmer for about 15 minutes or until tender and thickened. If you need, add 1/2 cup broth till pasta is cooked. Mix in 1/4 cup parmesan cheese.
