One Pot Parmesan Pasta

I’ve been doing a lot more cooking lately and I’m loving it. There is nothing better than a home cooked meal for your family. Granted I am still far from a gourmet chef, I can follow a recipe well and still make a killer meal.

While I am beginning to enjoy cooking more and more again, it’s still time consuming and some days I just don’t feel like cooking at all. That’s what slow cookers are for and also one-pot meals. Everything in one pot/pan and hardly any cleanup (because we all hate the cleanup).

One Pot Parmesan Pasta

This pasta is simple, delicious, and comes together in less than 30 minutes. Everything is cooked in the same pot, at the same time, so all the flavors really mesh together and become one big bowl of deliciousness.
