Pasta is just good ol’ comfort food and something I love!  Alfredo has always been one of my favorites, especially when it’s a Skinny Chicken Alfredo.  However, I think this one pot pasta might be my new favorite!

Chicken and pasta simmer in a creamy homemade tomato sauce!  The best part is that it all cooks up in one pan because I really love not washing dishes.  :)  Make sure your pan is large so you have some room to stir the pasta as it cooks!

You can use any cooked chicken including leftover chicken or even rotisserie chicken!  Either way, this is creamy and totally delicious!  I broil this in the oven to melt the cheese.  If you’d prefer not to broil it you can just add the cheese once the pasta is cooked and cover about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
