Dinner

Chicken Parmesan Pasta Skillet

Hey guys!

So, I’m back from vacation, so it’s cooking time again :). Sorry that I didn’t post for so long, but I had a big stock in the freezer, so I had to finish that first. And then I went on vacation.

So, what did I make this time? I wanted something quick and easy, but also delicious. I found this recipe on Pinterest and it’s a keeper. It’s so simple and delicious. I made a few adjustments to the original recipe, so see below for my version. Enjoy!
