Emeril's new cookbook Sizzling Skillets and Other One-Pot Wonders is proving to be a really great cookbook. I am so proud to be part of the One-Pot Cooking Party. It has been really great getting to know the other bloggers and getting a sneak peek at the cookbook has been truly delicious!
This Baked Cavatappi with Chicken in a Pesto Cream Sauce is my favorite so far. It comes from the Baking Dishes and Casseroles section. This cookbook is setup different than most. Not by protein, or main dishes, sides, and so on. It is set up by cooking vessel. Cool idea huh! The sections are: Skillets and Saute Pans, Casseroles and Baking Dishes, Big Pots, Woks, and Slow Cookers.
I actually used penne pasta instead of cavatappi and any tubular pasta will work. It is so full of flavor from the pesto cream sauce plus the chicken and spinach adds a hearty dimension to a dish that is classic comfort food at its best. I served it up with some crusty French bread and thoroughly enjoyed every bite.
