This one pot meal is easy to make, which is a goal most of us have. Even better...it can be ready in 15 minutes, and on top of that, you will only have one pot to use at the end of the process! 

Mama Steph's creamy one-pot pasta with chicken and veggies

Ingredients:

I pound box of penne pasta

1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved

One bag of precooked chicken strips

One 12-14 ounce bag frozen vegetables 

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon olive oil

32 ounces vegetable or chicken broth

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 teaspoons salt

4 ounces cream cheese

Method:

1. In a Dutch oven or stock pot, warm oil, then add the garlic. Cook for one minute.

2. Add broth to pan, then bring to a boil.

3. Add salt, pasta, frozen vegetables and pepper flakes to the broth, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Cook for 10 minutes, or recommended time on pasta box.

4. Add to the pot the chicken strips, halved cherry tomatoes, and cream cheese. Stir as it simmers for several minutes until everything is heated through and cream cheese is melted.

Makes 6 generous servings.
