Easy and Delicious One-Skillet Pasta

May 7, 2019

Author Notes: This pasta cooks easily in one pan (no need to boil the water first) and makes its own creamy sauce, in about 10-12 minutes. Great as a main dish or as a side with Chicken, Shrimp or Fish. Adapted slightly from Martha Stewart's One-Pan Pasta.Mrs. C
