One Skillet Pasta Meal

One Skillet Pasta Meal

Get ready to taste Italy in this one skillet pasta meal! I’m adding super nutrients with mushroom chicken bone broth! Oh, yes, totally divine!

Easy Chicken and Mushroom Pasta

Yes, this recipe is so simple and easy. The most labor is the prep. Yes, cutting up the vegetables you’re going to use. 

I’m using what’s in season, zucchini, squash, tomatoes, spinach and, always and forever, my fresh whole leaf sweet basil!

Pasta in One Pot

Actually, there’s no chicken in this recipe. No chicken as in meat. The mushroom chicken comes from the divine fabulous bone broth, which cooks the pasta. 

In this one pot, the pasta, and I love the mezze rigatoni, absorbs all the nutrients and flavor of the pasture-raised bone broth from Kettle and Fire.

I keep this bone broth, different varieties and even their delicious soups, in my pantry. Use the code ALLYSKITCHEN for 20% off your order! It’s so worth it. 

One Pan Pasta Dishes

Who doesn’t love a one pan dish. And, pasta is so simple to make in one pan. 

There’s no mess in cooking the pasta in a large pot then dealing with lifting and draining it. 

No, this pasta cooks right in the bone broth and with the vegetables. 

And, if you’re looking for a killer good one-skillet chicken dish with greens, then this Curry Chicken recipe will be perfect on a hectic weeknight! 

One Skillet Pasta Dinners

You’ll pray for leftovers because this pasta is so so good on day two. 

And, you can use other pastas, but the mezze rigatoni holds its shape well. Don’t use the large rigatoni as it tends to split and break apart. Other good pastas to use would be bow tie, capanelle, penne, cavatappi. That’s because these are smaller pasta pieces and they work well in the pan/skillet. If you have a skillet that’s 12″+ you could try spaghetti or linguine.  

Pasta Cooked with Chicken Broth

Nothing improves the flavor of pasta than cooking in a rich bone broth. I oftentimes do this when I make any kind of pasta. Even if I’m going to scoop meaty Bolognese on top the pasta, it’s better when cooked in bone broth. And, speaking of Bolognese, you much take a gander at some of my outstanding recipes! 

Pasta Cooked in Stock

Why is Kettle and Fire my preferred bone broth. Well, for many reasons, but mainly because it’s even better than I can make at home from scratch. It’s simmered 14+ hours. The bones in the stock are grassfed or pasture-raised. Kettle and Fire focuses on regenerative farming which is good for the environment. In the chicken bone broth even chicken feet are used. These chicken feet are the most nutrient dense in making broth and you get all that important collagen in the broth. So, if you’ve never tried it, here you go.
