I’m officially in love with this one pot chili pasta skillet. And so is the husband. We polished off the entire skillet which actually serves 4 in one afternoon. And then felt really guilty after and ended up eating a salad for dinner. Guess we made up for it right?

But that didn’t stop us from making it a second and a third time. In fact I’m making it again this weekend when we have friends coming over. Because good food must be shared and I know our friends will love this big one pot dinner. In fact every time I make one pot dishes with easy clean-up, I’m always asked for the recipe.

This chili pasta skillet really tops my list of easy one pot pasta recipes and I ain’t complaining because who doesn’t love a good chili, and combined with some carbs in the form of pasta noodles, you’ve got yourself a winner. We love topping ours with lots of sliced onions, some avocados and even cilantro sometimes. And it makes for fantastic leftovers. I just add a dash of milk or broth while re-heating to make it all creamy again!
