One Pot Chicken Alfredo Pasta with Broccoli Recipe

I am all about finding easy & time-saving recipes as our evenings can be so hectic and we are doing a million & one things at once, so I love one-pot meals. They are not only fast & simple to make with less preparation, but you are not making a big mess in the kitchen. One of the most time-consuming aspects of dinner clean-up is all the big pots & pans to scrub – but in this case, you only have the one skillet to clean & you’re all set!  And what’s not to love about a creamy, cheesy chicken alfredo pasta filled with broccoli, so you are getting your veggies in, too!

  • 1/8 cup parmesan
