One Pot Pasta with Mushrooms, Parmesan and Sage

You may have seen one-pot pasta dishes being made on Tik Tok or Instagram. The allure is obvious, easy one pot pasta creates fewer dirty dishes. One pot pasta dishes are also incredibly flavorful because the pasta is cooked in broth and the pasta and the sauce and veggies all come together in one delicious pot.

Typically, when making a pasta dish, you boil noodles in heavily salted water to absorb seasoning from the start. With one-pot pasta, because you are cooking in broth, the noodles are absorbing the flavor of the sauce as they cook. This is a huge bonus from a flavor perspective and is going to be a game-changer for you! It saves time and makes for a flavorful one-pot dish.

What is it about Mushrooms and Sage and Cream that go so wonderfully together? Add the silky pasta and it’s always a winner. This dish could easily be at home with chopped chicken breast added. Cut chicken breast pieces into one-inch portions and toss them with the noodles and broth while the noodles are cooking. Add a 1/3 cup more broth or water and the chicken gets poached in the cooking liquid. Give this delicious one-pot meal a try and drop a message in the comments and let me know what you think.
