One Pan Italian Pasta

As apartment-renters, my husband and I don’t have a dishwasher. And I hate doing dishes. Especially by hand. If we’re having a little honesty moment here – sometimes they sit there for a few days before I even bother to do them! Anytime I can find a one-pan dinner, I celebrate a little bit, because it saves me a lot of time, and saves my poor wrinkled hands from a big battle with the dish soap. 😉

This One Pan Italian Pasta is one of our new favorite go-to meals. It literally takes 20 minutes to throw together from start to finish, and it is so filling! My husband literally asked when we could have it again while we were eating it. (That’s always a good sign, right?)

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced sweet onion
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2-3 chicken breasts, diced
  • 12 oz pasta (I used Rotini)
  • 3 cups of water (or chicken broth)
  • 1 envelope dry Italian dressing mix
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 cup Mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Saute the onions in olive oil on medium heat until they are soft.
  2. Add in the chicken and garlic powder, and cook until browned.
  3. Add pasta, water, dressing mix, and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, and let it cook for about 10 minutes (or until the water has evaporated).
  4. Top with Mozarella cheese and basil, letting it sit for just a minute so the cheese is melted.
