One Pot Pasta

makes 2 servings

  • 175 g Rigatoni pasta
  • 200 g chicken breast
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/2 zucchini
  • 100 g mushrooms
  • 350 ml chicken broth
  • 100 ml white wine
  • 1 tsp dried herbs (e.g. Provençal herbs)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 200 g chunky tomatoes (can)
  • 50 ml cream
  • 25 g Parmesan

 

Peel onions and garlic and chop them finely. Clean the zucchini and mushrooms and cut into little pieces.

Put all the ingredients, except cheese and cream, into a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and allow to simmer for 10 minutes without the lid, stirring occasionally. If the pasta isn’t tender after that time, just add 50 ml of water and simmer for another 3-5 minutes.

Stir in the cream and season with salt and pepper. Serve with fresh Parmesan.

Depending on the type of pasta, the cooking time of your pasta and the amount of liquid required can vary quite a bit. So don’t be afraid to try a few and just don’t take the pasta with the longest cooking time 🙂

Stay sweet & HAPPY COOKING!
