One Pot Garden Pasta with Chicken

I remember my Mother and her friends called a recipe like this a One Dish Dinner and today we call it a One Pot Meal. It is really great to have a go to recipe for a very busy day when there is no extra time to be spent in the kitchen. This One Pot Meal, uses fresh vegetables right out of the garden or the farmers market. A harvest in the pot, add some chicken, and this is a fabulous One Pot Meal in less than one hour. This is one of our new recipes from Garden to Table, and sure hope you enjoy it as much as we have!

  1. I love all of those fresh veggies in there and the fact that there's noodles and cheese means the little one might not mind all of the veggies so much ;-)
