An easy and delicious recipe for One-Pot Creamy Pesto Chicken Penne Pasta ready in about 30 minutes!

I have been on a one-pot roll lately! If I can toss everything in one pot, a casserole dish or my slow cooker for dinner I’ll do it. It’s a huge timesaver and makes me happy when it’s time to clean the dishes! This incredible One-Pot Creamy Pesto Chicken Pasta is super tasty and so easy! You won’t believe it all came together in one pot!

Basil pesto is one of my absolute favorites! I could eat it everyday! And nothing beats fresh basil pesto in the summer! I love to mix it with a little mayo and spread it on sandwiches and wraps, to make a vinaigrette and of course with pasta. I’ll never forget the first time I had basil pesto. It was simply tossed with angel hair pasta and shavings of fresh parmesan. It was heaven and since then I have a love for basil pesto on almost anything.
