ONE POT CHICKEN PARMESAN PASTA

Ingredients

  • 1lb ground chicken (weighed raw)
  • 2 tsp italian seasoning
  • Salt & pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 2 cups pasta sauce (I used my zero point veggie pasta sauce)
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 cups of pasta (Included picture of my brand, SP for pasta was 24 to compare)
  • ⅓ cup grated parmesan
  • ½ cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella

Instructions

  1. In a large frying pan or skillet (I used a saute pan) cook your ground chicken, add in a dash of salt & pepper and 1 tsp italian seasoning. Remove chicken from pan once it is cooked.
  2. Add in diced garlic *I sprayed the bottom of the pan with a little cooking spray, let the garlic cook a few minutes then add in tomato sauce and water. Bring to a boil, then turn down to medium-low.
  3. Add in pasta and chicken, let cook for about 20 minutes or until pasta is cooked to liking.
  4. Stir in parmesan cheese, 1 tsp italian seasoning and ¼ cup of the mozzarella.
  5. Top with remaining mozzarella and serve.
  6. Makes 6- 1 cup servings, pasta will freeze well.
  7. *Feel free to bulk it up by adding in some vegetables, add them when you put the garlic in the pan.
