Creamy Tomato One Pot Pasta

Reduced fat cream cheese makes this one pot dish extra luxurious without the guilt!

Quick-cooking meals that only use one pot or pan are so great to keep in your weeknight cooking arsenal. Things like this Single-Skillet Bacon-Rosemary Chicken Thighs with Roasted Tomatoes or this One-Pan Orecchiette with Chickpeas and Olives are great examples of dishes that pack a ton of flavor without making a huge mess in the kitchen.

When I saw this recipe over on Diethood, I knew it would be perfect for a busy weeknight!

This pasta was quick and delicious, and so creamy, you’d never guess it was healthy! I love the texture of whole grain pasta, and it really holds onto the sauce well in this dish.

It was a nice, simple meal that packed a lot of flavor, and my whole family really enjoyed it. I’ll definitely be making it again!
