What is chicken tetrazzini?

Tetrazzini is a chicken pasta dish that was first cooked some time in the first decade of the 1900s by a chef at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. Chef Ernest Arbogast cooked this signature dish for the famous opera singer Luisa Tetrazzini. The dish is rich and indulgent, just like the voice of an opera singer!

Tetrazzini is described as a type of meat (generally chicken) prepared with pasta and a cream sauce with mushrooms, sprinkled with cheese, and baked in the oven. Our take on it skips the oven-baking step in favor of cooking it in one pot on the stove!

What is one pot pasta

We love one pot pasta! It’s such a simple and easy way to make super-fragrant, rich pasta dishes. Essentially, we cook everything in one pot — which really cuts down on the amount of dishes you’ll need to do later! We also often swap out pasta water for broth. Between the flavorful broth and the ingredients simmering alongside the pasta, we can enhance the flavor of the noodles themselves!

If you love this concept, then you have to try our One Pot Caprese Pasta that’s just delish. You can also find a compilation of five of our favorite one pot pasta dishes and try those out, as well! We are confident that once you try one, you’ll want to try them all.
