Warm, gooey, full of cheesy goodness, and loaded with infused flavor, my One Pan Salsa Verde Pasta recipe is what dreams are made of. Working with Barilla pasta is like having a blank canvas; adding flavor to create a totally reinvented meal is easier than it seems, which is what I did with this simple one pan recipe.

I started by adding some chicken I’d already diced into bite size chunks into a large skillet with some olive oil. I seasoned them with a little salt and pepper while they cooked for several minutes until they completely cooked through and I removed them from the pan and set them aside on a plate.

In the same skillet I added some chicken broth, salsa verde, heavy cream, and some uncooked Barilla Penne pasta. I gave everything a few good stirs and let it come to a boil. Once it was at a boil, I turned the heat down to low, covered the skillet with a lid, and let it simmer for several minutes until the pasta was tender – al dente is always perfect.

I added the chicken back into the skillet along with some pepper jack cheese and combined everything together.

I added plenty of freshly chopped cilantro once the pasta was slightly cooled down and ready to serve.

This zesty One Pan Salsa Verde Pasta has quickly become one of my family’s weeknight favorites. It’s simple to throw together, packed with bold flavor, and only leaves me with one pan to clean up after cooking.
