I was inspired to make this while looking for an easy meal to throw together while keeping the wife happy. She is a huge fan of broccoli and cheese (mainly) so I put together this One-Pot cheesy pasta skillet. Fresh flavors and colors mingle together gracefully. Buy pre cut broccoli florets and shredded cheese to save on prep time.

  2. Use a saucepan and lid that are oven safe and toss a ¼ cup of breadcrumbs or your favorite chips on your finished pasta skillet. Put in oven for 2 minutes (or until browned) on broil for crunchy topping on your skillet pasta.
