Sauteed chicken with pasta and homemade alfredo topped with bacon...all in one pot and done in under 30 minutes!
Another amazing one pot recipe hits the blog today. I seriously love this one. It's so simple, so delicious. I love homemade alfredo sauce and the addition of bacon on top is incredible. I feel like I have written these same things over and over again. Oy vey. It is sometimes so very hard to describe food or to put into words what you want to say.
I think one pot meals are the perfect dish in a lot of ways. You dirty less dishes. They are often pretty fast too - most of the ones I have made were done in under 30 minutes. They are always flavorful. You can feed a family of four easily and I can only imagine their convenience for smaller families or even single folks. Easy dish, plenty of delicious leftovers!
