One Skillet Hawaiian Pasta

One Skillet Hawiian Pasta


I am a big fan of the "One Skillet" meals.  I like that I can cook everything in one skillet and walk away for a bit while the pasta cooks.  It makes clean up easy, it cooks quickly, and my kids have enjoyed the new recipes.  This dinner is a perfect fit for a busy summer evening after playing outside and enjoying the sun. My One Skillet Hawaiian Pasta tastes like pizza and is on the table in 30 minutes!
