One pot chicken parmesan pasta

February 3, 2019

This one pot chicken parmesan is not only a quick and easy meal but a delicious one the whole family can enjoy. I love that it is all cooked in one pan making clean up simple and takes just 30 minutes from start to finish!  Feel free to add in some vegetables to bulk it up, I used my zero point homemade vegetable tomato sauce to keep points low. Serves 6 at 5 smart points per serving on WW freestyle.

      My guess is it won’t affect it much I did list the points for my pasta in the recipe so you can compare

      Hi Sarah I use the one on the WW app.. I build the recipe to figure out freestyle points, then I also build the recipe in My Fitness Pal to get the nutritional numbers, I then run those numbers through the WW app calculator to get the old SP values, if the recipe has fruits/veggies in it (which are free on old SP/PP) I enter the nutri numbers before those ingredients are worked into the equation if that makes sense 🙂

      Hi Sarah, you are adding the pasta to the pot uncooked as it is a one pot recipe so it will cook when you add it 🙂

    Have you found a low point pasta sauce that you would recommend if you dont have the time to make your zero point pasta sauce first?

      Hi Natalie, not really, they are all pretty standard, best advice is to just scan away at the grocery store and you might find a hidden gem haha

    What is the best way to freeze this? Transfer all to one dish or single portions? This is great, thank you!

    If I use your home made pasta sauce does that change the points at all for blue program?

      Hi Tammy, as stated in recipe I used my zero point sauce so points are already taking that into account 🙂

        When would we add any/all of the above veggies? Should I cook them first til they are soft?

          Hi Melissa, that would depend on your likely, if you prefer soft-cooked veggies then yes cook them, I add them in step #3

      that 24 you are seeing is the smart points for the amount of pasta used which was 3 cups dry
