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!

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.
Pesto is best homemade. I’ve tried store bought pesto before for kicks and curiosity and it’s just not the same. I’ve never found one that could replace homemade pesto, plus it’s so simple to make too!
