You know a meal is good when all you hear are forks clinking on plates and the occasional smacking.  Those are the meals I cherish because there is no fighting, no dirty looks, no shoving plates away in disgust and no listening to the line every mom dreads- I don’t like this.

My husband isn’t a spinach lover and he even had seconds on this.  So, there you have it- one pot chicken florentine pasta that is quick, simple, requires ordinary ingredients that make an extraordinary meal!

I also have many other one pot pasta options.  Like this one pot bacon alfredo, or this really popular homemade hamburger helper.  I also have some one pot meals that aren’t pasta.  One of our favorites is this sheet pan BBQ meatballs green beans and potatoes.  Another favorite is this sheet pan steak fajitas!

So, many options to choose from and the best part is one pan to clean up!
