One Pot Chicken Parmesan Pasta

One Pot Chicken Parmesan Pasta…I can’t tell you how much we like this one.  I made it for the first time last week and fell in love.  It’s a little different from most one pot meals, but still easy and oh so tasty.  The crunchy topping really makes this dish.

One of the things I love about these one pot meals is that by cooking the pasta in with the broth and other ingredients, the starch combines with the broth to  make a nice creamy dish without adding any cheese or cream.  As I have become lactose intolerant, this is a huge plus for me.  It also cuts down on the calorie count.
