One Pot Lemon Parmesan Pasta is a delicious weeknight or date night in meal! The noodles are cooked right in the bright lemon-zested Parmesan sauce making this pasta recipe fast and so easy!
Is there anyone who doesn’t like a one pot dinner? They are so easy, convenient, and I love when they are also delicious! Of course I wouldn’t share a recipe that isn’t delicious with out, so this Lemon Parmesan Kale Pasta definitely hits all of the marks.
I first made a one-pot pasta when I made my One Pot Spaghetti and One Pot Tortellini a few years ago, and it truly is changing. I love not having to dirty more pots and pans than necessary.
Ingredients in One Pot Lemon Parmesan Pasta
The ingredients in this Lemon Parmesan Kale Spaghetti are super basic – butter, garlic, chicken broth, half and half, lemon zest, spaghetti, Parmesan, and kale. That’s it! Best yet, it all gets dumped in one pot and cooked together, creating a creamy and delicious pasta dinner.
How to Cook Lemon Parmesan Pasta
This one pot lemon parmesan spaghetti starts with a little butter and garlic. How can we go wrong with that? After this you just add in some chicken broth, half and half (or milk if you want it a little lighter), lemon zest, and spaghetti noodles.
The mixture gets simmered for about 15 minutes and then you’ll add the Parmesan cheese and kale to finish it off. That’s truly it!
This made my entire meal but if you want to add a little protein, you could certainly saute some chicken while the pasta is cooking to place on top.
This dish was a true family pleaser. Lars declared “I love this pasta mama!” and Soren helped himself to FOUR servings. If that’s not a true testament to a good recipe, I’m not sure what is!
