It’s back-to-school time again and all moms are busy with the daily routines: sending the kids to school, clean, shop and make dinner before the little ones are home.

Little G has just started kindergarten so I have been very busy. My days are packed with activities so when it comes to dinner time, the easier the better.
That’s why this creamy garlic Parmesan fettuccine is my easy pasta dinner for him.
The ingredients are everyday items that you probably have at home so you don’t even have to go out to shop! I used fettuccine, but you can use just about any pasta you like: linguine or spaghetti will be just fine, or penne. This is indeed a simple one-pot pasta recipe.
First, cook the fettuccine according to the instructions. Then use your favorite skillet to make the creamy garlic sauce. You will need heavy whipping cream, chicken broth and garlic. Transfer the cooked pasta into the sauce and top with loads of Parmesan cheese.
This garlic Parmesan fettuccine recipe takes only 20 minutes and you can pack the leftover for school the next day!
