Creamy Chicken Pasta is a savory quick and easy dinner I’ve been making for years that everyone is excited to see hit the table. One thing I love about this dish is that it can be made entirely in one cast iron pan or dutch oven. Anything to save on dishes is a huge hit for me. Don’t get me wrong ; I love a meal that is meant to take all day and impress as well but not in the middle of the week when I need to feed my family of 6 in under an hour.

This Creamy Chicken Pasta recipe is one you will want to keep on hand for just those times.
