Recipe

I've got dinner covered! One Pot Creamy Parmesan Broccoli Pasta - it's so good and so easy. Ready in under 30 minutes.

One pot pasta dishes are all the rage and for good reason. Dinner and only one dirty pot - it's a no brainer, especially when it's made with lots of garlic, Parmesan cheese, and broccoli. The secret to making this one pot pasta dish so creamy is using milk and vegetable broth as the cooking liquid. They combine with the natural starches in the pasta to create a perfect creamy sauce that's packed with flavor. I like to add lots of black pepper and usually some fresh herbs, like basil, to the final product. Delicious and easy.
