One Pot Pasta
We’re used to boiling our pasta separately, in one pot full of salted water before incorporating it into our dish of choice. But today we’re going to cook our pasta right in with our broth, added to our skillet once the chicken is done cooking. Our softened onion and garlic will cook right alongside the pasta to ensure that each bite is flavorful! I’ve added some broccoli for some greenery but feel free to get creative with your veggie additions!
