Start by browning the cubed chicken on all sides, don’t worry about having it cooked all the way through at this point, it will continue to cook as the pasta boils. Once the chicken is all nice and golden, add in all the chopped veggies and let those cook for a few minutes.

Now for the one pot meal wonder!! Dump in your uncooked pasta, water and spaghetti sauce. Bring all this to a boil and cover for 10-15 minutes until the pasta is al dente. Sprinkle with cheesy goodness and enjoy!!!
