We do love cheesy chicken stuffed shells with cream cheese but sometimes a quick one pot pasta just fits the bill!

When it comes to the holidays, it seems everything requires so much of our time that we miss out on good quality time with our friends and family. I don’t know about you, but a lot of times I will just call up a friend last minute and ask them to come over for dinner so we can catch up or just spend some time together despite the craziness of the holiday season.

I love sitting at my table with my favorite people, just enjoying their company and some good food and good wine. Those are the best times aren’t they?! One thing I know is that those impromptu dinner nights almost always end up being some of my most treasured memories. That’s why it’s best to have just a few things on hand for nights like that so you don’t have to worry about mess or stress about what you’re going to make. I have created a no fail, one pot pasta dish that is amazing! Seriously! It’s so good that I ate it 3 meals in a row!

Here’s my favorite one-dish pasta recipe! It’s takes less than 20 minutes from start to finish and you’ll only use one pot to make this! In fact, you might not even need to dirty up a dish! If you are like me and cannot wait to start eating it, grab a fork and dig in! I don’t judge! Now, if you have company over, please remember your manners….and hand them a fork too! 😉

    Made this tonight and added spicy ground sausage…when you do add meat, need a bit more cream. It was wonderful!!!!

  2. This sounds so good. Gonna try it soon. Thanks for sharing it.

    Usually, I love a good Cab Sav – so I love that Dreaming Tree has that variety, although I think the Crush is a must-try. I love the idea of pairing it with a creamy pasta! [client]
